THE FORTY-YEAR-OLD VERSION
2020, Netflix, 129 min, USA, Dir: Radha Blank

Radha, a down-on-her-luck NY playwright, is desperate for a breakthrough before 40. But when she foils what seems like her last shot at success, she’s left with no choice but to reinvent herself as rapper RadhaMUSPrime. THE FORTY-YEAR-OLD VERSION follows Radha as she vacillates between the worlds of Hip Hop and theater on a quest to find her true voice. Winner of the Directing Prize at The 2020 Sundance Film Festival, THE FORTY-YEAR-OLD VERSION is a hilariously candid and deeply personal debut from writer-director Radha Blank. A fresh addition to the New York City slice-of-life canon shot in lush black and white 35mm, Blank’s film is an ode to the unfulfilled, and those whose adversity gives them a one-of-a-kind story to tell.
