Actor Virginie Efira has attracted a dedicated following in recent years with her rigorous, singularly sensitive performances, including star-making turns in NYFF selections Benedetta (NYFF59) and Sibyl (NYFF57) and Rendez-Vous favorite Madeleine Collins (2022)—and in this year’s edition of Rendez-Vous she takes center stage, with lead roles in Alice Winocour’s Revoir Paris (the Opening Night selection) and Rebecca Zlotowski’s Other People’s Children. Join us for a wide-ranging conversation in which we’ll discuss the evolution of Efira’s craft and her approach to portraying profoundly complicated, endlessly compelling women.
