What would you do if you won the lottery?
In The List Of My Desires, that’s what happens to Jocelyne (Mathilde Seignier), a humble seamstress in the northern French town of Arras who wins 18 million euros. Now Jocelyne can have anything she wants, but decides against sharing her news. How will this affect her life with her friends? With her father? With the man she loves? Although content with her life as it is, Jocelyne decides to make a list of the things she really wants for her future.
Adapted from the bestselling French novel by Grégoire Delacourt, this is a touching film about possibilities and the old saying that money can’t buy happiness.
The cast is uniformly brilliant, with a luminous Mathilde Seignier at its heart. The talented actress has been nominated for a César Award three times, and her portrayal of the conflicted Jocelyne is sure to garner further acclaim.
