French Film Festival - Things to Come

Alliance Francaise French Film Festival
The incomparable Isabelle Huppert (Valley of Love, AF FFF16), is at her marvellous best in the internationally celebrated new film from Mia Hansen-Løve (Father of My Children, 2009), the profoundly moving story of a fifty-something woman who, after living comfortably for many years, must suddenly reinvent her life.
Nathalie (Huppert) teaches philosophy at a college in Paris. Married with two grown-up children, her spare time is devoted to the books she publishes as a sideline, to former students who have become friends and, above all, to her overly possessive mother (the great Édith Scob). But out of nowhere, Nathalie’s husband Heinz (André Marcon) announces he is leaving her for another woman, the first of a series of events that will completely upend Nathalie’s world, and force her to reassess her future.
Tender and contemplative, Things to Come depicts a story that, whilst common in real life, is rarely presented with such warmth and intelligence on screen. Having garnered extraordinary critical acclaim at major festivals worldwide, it certifies Hansen-Løve as one of the most distinguished voices in French cinema, and is a must-see Festival highlight.
