Dominique is a cancer survivor. Everything in her present life is informed by this fact. Over a period of thirty years and across several continents, the beautiful Dominique searches for the meaning of life. THE GREEN HOUR refers to 1890s Paris, when café habitués drank absinthe at dusk. Celeste Lawson breathes life into Frederic Tuten’s academic humor and esoteric allusions. Her skill as a reader keeps Dominique’s bouts of ennui from becoming boring. As Dominique ponders the connections between life and art, love and death, Lawson’s performance is earnest and touching. She provides the necessary humanity in Dominique’s deep commitment to her art, to the men who love her, and to a 2-year-old with an old soul.
