She has written on children and cinema in her 2003 volume Cinema's Missing Children and in a series of essays on representations of children in the work of women filmmakers. She has written on uses of cinema in contexts of intimate and historical responses to loss and pain, in her most recent monograph Love, Mortality and the Moving Image, in her studies of directors Alain Resnais and Atom Egoyan, and in ongoing work on Marguerite Duras.
