Synopsis:
In the vast rooms of a beautiful Sicilian villa, Anna (Juliette Binoche) receives an unexpected guest. Twenty-something Jeanne (Lou de Laage) has arrived from France, declaring herself to be the girlfriend of Anna's son, Giuseppe (Giovanni Anzaldo), who has invited her to the house to spend Easter together. But this is news to Anna, and Giuseppe is not yet there. Despite the disruption to her routine, Anna invites her young guest to stay, and as the two women await Giuseppe's arrival, they slowly begin to form a connection. Jeanne, dislocated and a little mystified at first, gradually gives in to the charms of the volcanic island.
She swims in the nearby lake and makes new friends, while Anna - watched over by a long-time family friend - comes out of her shell. Yet still, her son's absence remains unexplained...Spectacularly shot, measured and contemplative, "The Wait" navigates a complex range of emotions in the telling of this stirring encounter between two women from different generations.
