Likeness, the directorial debut of Oscar-nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, is a personal meditation on eating disorders based on his daughter's experiences. Elle Fanning stars as a young girl who struggles with a splintered self perception, highlighted by society's expectations and idealizations of the female form.
The cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto has collaborated with directors like Oliver Stone and Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street). But he counts Likeness, the eight-minute film he recently completed with his 19-year-old daughter, Ximena, as a professional achievement on par with his Oscar nomination for Brokeback Mountain.
