Deborah Kobylt LIVE


Oct 18, 2023

#Monica is a film worthy of an Oscar nomination, and I recently interviewed
Eleonora Granata-Jenkinson, producer, and Andrea Pallaoro, director, about the
making of this this beautiful movie.
Monica is played Trace Lysette and Patricia Clarkson stars as her mother. The film
is about a trans woman who was driven out of her home decades earlier because
her family would not accept her life choice. But Monica returns to care for her
ailing mother, and the humanity and emotions that evolve throughout this film are
nothing short of extraordinary.
Here’s a clip from our interview with Eleonora and Andrea, representing
Italian-American filmmaking at its finest. They talk about making this movie, and
the choices made to depict the story with such beauty.
Monica is also getting Oscar nods, and the team will be fundraising to raise money
for an Oscar campaign, and we also talked about that during our interview. Please
find our full conversation with Eleonora and Andrea on all video and audio
platforms of #LittleItalyPodcast, #LittleItalyOfLAPodcast, and
#DeborahKobyltLIVE, and invite your friends, too.
I’m your host, #DeborahZaraKobylt, and I’m honored to have you joining us 󰏢
