Director: Blandine Lenoir
Stars: Agnès Jaoui, Thibault de Montalembert, Pascale Arbillot
Divorced, with two grown-up daughters, Agnes is contending with unemployment, menopause and the prospect of becoming a grandmother. While she cherishes her relationship with her daughters, Agnes isn’t ready to give up on working life or the possibility of romance. As our heroine, Jaoui is magnificent – warm, inspiring and credible as the beating heart of this “vibrant, uplifting look at a stage of life that the movies so often forget.” (Time Out).
Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. For this film we are showing Living with Autism (PG) (7.45 min), directed by Hasna Tayyar, ‘a mother explains the challenges involved in bringing up her young son’.
