Director: Mia Hansen-Løve
Stars: Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, Edith Scob
Middle-aged philosophy teacher Nathalie Chazeaux (Huppert) is married with two children.
Between work and family life, her spare time is spent dealing with her supposedly depressed (or perhaps just attention seeking) mother and battling with her publisher who wishes to recover her academic book due to poor sales.
The last thing Nathalie expects is for her husband (Marcon) to announce that he’s leaving her for a younger woman. For the first time in her life she’s cast adrift.
Hubbert is an absorbing presence and natural performer in this modern tale of autonomy and reinvention.
