A profoundly moving drama about our collective need to find meaning in the objects we hold dear, Nostalgia is a mosaic of interconnected stories built around the central theme of loss and memory, filled with characters as real and recognizable as your friends and neighbors. With what critics proclaim as "exceptional performances from a first-rate ensemble cast," including Jon Hamm (Baby Driver), Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore), and Academy Award-nominated Catherine Keener (Get Out), Nostalgia is "a movie worth remembering" (Pete Hammond, Deadline).

Critics Consensus: Nostalgia combines talented actors and honorable intentions, but poky pacing and a lack of depth make it unlikely the end result will ever inspire the titular emotion.

Leisurely, wistful drama about people and their belongings.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Nostalgia is a drama that follows several characters as they think about and deal with the belongings of the deceased (and soon-to-be deceased). It includes a teen girl's offscreen death (she's killed by a drunk driver), which profoundly affects those around her. Consequently, there's frequent talk of death. A house is shown burned to ashes. Language is infrequent but includes several uses of "f--k," a few uses of "s--t," and a few uses of "God" (as an exclamation). This is a lovely, dreamy, languid movie; it's perhaps a bit too slow for every taste, but for thoughtful, patient viewers, it's very much worth seeing. Jon Hamm, Catherine Keener, and Ellen Burstyn co-star.
