Judy Greer Scores Leading Role in ‘Aporia’ Thanks to a Memorable Performance

Judy Greer

Judy Greer’s extraordinary ability to meld both sorrow and humor in her acting caught the eye of director Jared Moshé, making her the ideal pick for the lead role in his new film, Aporia. Moshé commends Greer for her ability to convey intense feelings through mere facial expressions or gestures.
The forthcoming movie showcases the character Sophie’s journey as she uses a time machine to reconnect with her late husband, a decision that could have reality-altering consequences.

Although Judy Greer is primarily recognized for her comedic talents, she now takes on a dramatic role in the new sci-fi film Aporia. The story revolves around grief and is narrated through fictional technology. Greer’s character, Sophie, faces the challenges of grieving for her husband, managing a full-time job, and motherhood. A surprise offer from an obscure physicist to use a time machine puts her in front of an unimaginable decision. Director Jared Moshé revealed to FilmSweep what made him choose Greer for this role:

I recall that scene in The Descendants – the ending where she confronts George Clooney and his comatose wife, transitioning from a poignant and truthful moment to something awkward yet humorous. No other actor could have pulled that off the way Judy did.

Moshé also spoke extensively about Greer’s innate ability to portray her characters’ emotions, stating, “I’ve always admired Judy as an actor. Though often playing a sidekick or secondary role, she stands out as one of the most expressive actors today. Her power to communicate through a look or a simple movement is both forceful and distinctive.”

The initial trailer for this independent movie sets the tone for Sophie’s emotional state after losing her husband to a drunk driver. Her skepticism towards the time machine changes when she encounters Mal (Edi Gathegi) again, leading her to use the device repeatedly. However, her continuous time travels may result in irreversible changes to her original reality.
