Based on the wryly funny bestseller by Maria Semple, Where’d You Go, Bernadette? is an inspiring comedy about a loving mom (Cate Blanchett) who becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family.
Bernadette Fox is an eccentric and tart-tongued architect who’s effectively retired due to creative setbacks and frustrations at work. Mother to a brilliant teenage daughter, she has a beautiful home and a loving husband. But the feeling that something’s missing leads her to head out on a leap-of-faith adventure to rediscover her passions. Concerned about her disappearance, her family sets out to solve the mystery of where she might have gone. From director Richard Linklater (Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Waking Life, Before Sunset, Boyhood…) Where’d You Go, Bernadette? features a fantastic cast including Cate Blanchett, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, and Laurence Fishburn.
