Pieces of a Another Woman: Kornel Mundruczó Sets Up “At the Sea” with Amy Adams

In our second piece of news concerning a Hungarian filmmaker (and producer Alexander Rodnyansky), we’ve learned via the Deadline that Kornel Mundruczó has still got the Bostonian vibes and will boat out to At the Sea – a drama with Amy Adams in the top role. Set to enter production in Boston in June, this is produced by Ryder Picture Company’s Aaron Ryder and Andrew Swett, Stuart Manashil, Hammerstone Studios’ Alex Lebovici, Jon Oakes, Viktória Petrányi, Mundruczó and AR Content’s Rodnyansky. Exec producers are include Paul J. Diaz, Maria Breese, Lee Broda, Jeff Rice and Michael Kupisk. Zsofi Oblath and Rachel Rubin are co-producing.

Co-written by Pieces of a Woman pairing (husband and wife too) Mundruczó and Kata Wéber, this follows the life of Laura (Adams) after a long rehabilitation, as she returns to her family at their beach holiday home where she has to readjust to the complicated life she left behind. Now she is forced to face the following next chapter of her life without the career that gave her fame, fortune and, most importantly, identity.

In our review of Pieces of a Woman our Nicholas Bell called it “More of a throwback to classic but thorny melodramas of the New American Cinema movement in the 1970s than what might be predicted from Mundruczó (though his return to a centralized female protagonist isn’t terribly unlike his contemporary Joan of Arc medical drama Johanna, 2005), whatever the arguable detractions from its fractured narrative strands, its saving grace lies in the strength of a blistering performance form Vanessa Kirby as a woman continuously on the precipice of emotional implosion.”
