We continue our previous masters series with a weekly sampler of directors whose work to see, selecting a title each week we feel exemplifies their work that may expand beyond the scope of the go-to title.

Focused on the dysfunctional lives of three sisters and the lives that intertwine with theirs, we embark on a journey for happiness and fulfillment, discovering misery, alienation, obsession, strife, grief, guilt, shame, and sorrow. Make no mistake, there is nothing happy about this film, but it is provocative nonetheless.
