Camilla is a 1994 film directed by Deepa Mehta. It was Jessica Tandy's penultimate film appearance and is dedicated to her memory. Tandy plays the title character, Camilla Cara, a former concert violinist. It is a road movie with Bridget Fonda playing the opposite, younger female role of Freda Lopez, herself a musician/composer, albeit unfulfilled. The two leave their male companions, Camilla's son Harold (Maury Chaykin), a B-movie producer and Vincent (Elias Koteas), Freda's husband and artist behind in Savannah, Georgia to return to Toronto to attend a concert of Brahms' Violin Concerto at the Winter Garden Theatre. This performance is a mirror of a performance of Camilla's given at the same venue many years earlier.
The film is not only an adventure-filled journey, but also a reconciling of the two women's pasts and futures. Camilla and Freda bond over Camilla's unconditional support that she extends for Freda's music which Freda's husband will or can not give. This bond forms despite the obviously exaggerated stories Camilla tells of her own life.
The men, after having left the women to work on a joint project, return to Savannah to find the ladies have vanished. As Vincent and Harold embark on a search for Freda and Camilla, they, too, come to realize that they must reconcile their broken relationships with the women in their lives.
