Molly Bloom

DATE: 2016

DIRECTOR: Chiara Caselli


OVERVIEW: The film is a plunge into the heart, mind, and flesh of Molly, the main character of the final chapter of James Joyce’s Ulysses. It is the dead of night and Molly, in her bed, cannot get to sleep. Next to her face are the feet of her husband Leopold, who fell asleep upside-down and fully dressed. Molly’s voice, her irreverent, tragic, and childlike spirit, will lead us on a journey through her life and the people who inhabit it, whether living or imaginary. The present is then interwoven with a past that haunts her and a future that offers her what she feels she has lost, forever.
