An illuminating, beautifully wrought film" - Los Angeles Times
Ten years following its theatrical debut, this astonishing real-life mystery continues to haunt audiences around the world. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and widely hailed by critics, JUPITER’S WIFE tells the story of Maggie, a beguiling homeless woman living in New York City’s Central Park. In her forties, Maggie’s vibrant personality and unconventional persona attract the attention of acclaimed filmmaker Michel Negroponte, who accompanies Maggie as she wanders the park with her pack of dogs and an enormous backpack. A captivating jumble of cryptic stories, Maggie’s conversation is laced with intrigue and startling claims; among them, she claims to be the daughter of the Hollywood movie star Robert Ryan and married to the Roman god Jupiter. Fascinated, Negroponte and his camera follow Maggie for the next two years, as clue by clue, her enigma is deciphered and an astonishing story is revealed.
