Official Trailer

Sylvia (Jessica Chastain), a social worker and single mother with a smart teen daughter, leads a simple and structured life. This is blown open when Saul (Peter Sarsgaard) follows her home from their high school reunion. Their surprise encounter will profoundly impact them both as they open the door to the past. A laser-like drama about trauma and connection, Memory embraces past experiences inescapably real or distorted, repressed or lost forever, reachable only intermittently through haze or insistently demanding to be reckoned with. 2023 Venice International Film Festival Award: Best Actor.
