    by Pitchfork as “gorgeous . . . a hauntingly
    vivid psychological portrait, one that
    explores a dark scenario with a light, almost
    quizzical touch, finding poetic resonances
    everywhere.” Inspired by Homer’s epic
    poem, the Odyssey, Penelope is a meditation
    on memory, identity, and what it means to
    come home.
