lantanaLantana is a complex drama with a large ensemble cast that explores relationships, infidelity, love and loss. The story is woven together from a common thread, the search for a missing woman, whose lifeless body we see in the opening scenes. Similar to a number of films with interlocking subplots, we see lives of Lantana’s characters come together in unexpected ways. Though an unnecessary postscript provides closure to all of the loose ends, Lantana is a suspenseful story with considerable emotional depth (Klaus Ming December 2015).
