My Mother, Myself

Remembrance of Things Past

Since the filming, Hinson has struggled, but she's been able to keep Donyaeh at home. Hazzard, back from a Paris screening, stays on the positive. "We're much closer now. Everybody still has their little demons, but, you know." Dworkin, for her part, questions whether Love & Diane's conclusion is sufficiently open-ended. "People found the film very uplifting in a way I wasn't sure they would—I think there isa lot of hope. But there's a lot of ambiguity and a lot of sadness too. It worries me that people find Diane's graduation souplifting that they don't listen to what Love says in the final scene." At film's end, Hinson's implicit question remains unresolved: Can we forgive what we can't forget?
