Explores assisted suicide, a practice that remains illegal in Italy.
Irene lives in a small town along the Tyrrhenian Sea. While her friends and family believe she is student, Irene freelances as a clandestine euthanasia consultant. Using the professional pseudonym Honey, Irene helps terminally ill patients to die with dignity. A growing friendship with one of her patients, however, calls the rules of her trade into question.
An intelligent, nuanced portrait of life, death, and unlikely friendship, Miele (Honey) gently explores the moral and ethical valences of assisted suicide, a practice that remains illegal in Italy. Celebrated Italian actress Valeria Golino's directorial debut premiered at Cannes, where it won a Prize of the Ecumenical Jury. Miele (Honey) was nominated for seven David di Donatello awards and two Italian Golden Globes, winning Best Actress and Best First Feature.
