A Woman Like Me

About the Film

Faced with terminal breast cancer, filmmaker Alex Sichel finds solace in Buddhism, alternative medicine, and making a film about her fictional doppelganger confronting the same diagnosis, played by actress Lili Taylor. As Alex struggles to make sense of a death sentence, navigates the thorny problem of how to talk to her young daughter about cancer, and feels the strain the situation puts on her relationship with her husband, she finds reserves of strength and hope by channeling her efforts into her craft. Scenes from the fictional film she’s making are smartly interwoven with their real-life inspiration, demonstrating the power of art to illuminate reality and create a space of transformative reflection.
