DRAMA / FRANCE / 2022 / 113MINS / MA15+
The wonderful Léa Seydoux (Farewell My Queen, AF FFF18) stars in the sensitive and deeply personal new drama from acclaimed writer/director Mia Hansen-Løve (Things to Come, AF FFF17), as a single mother trying to balance the emotional needs of her parents, her child and herself.
Sandra lives in a small apartment in Paris with her eight-year-old daughter. Her parents have long separated and Sandra regularly visits her father, Georg (Pascal Greggory, The Page Turner, AF FFF07), an academic whose health has begun to deteriorate. Whilst she and her strong-willed mother (Nicole Garcia, Who You Think I Am, AF FFF19) struggle to agree on finding Georg a safe place to live, Sandra unexpectedly reconnects with an old friend, Clément (Melvil Poupaud, The Young Lovers, AF FFF22) as a passionate relationship begins to
form, but not without repercussions.
As always, Hansen-Løve weaves autobiographical elements into this delicate and heartfelt story of familial and romantic connections - finding strength against challenging odds. Seydoux is radiant as her lead, bringing tremendous warmth and empathy to her role and the film as a whole.
Humane and sympathetic. Léa Seydoux sparkles in a poignant, powerful story.– THE GUARDIAN
