Introduction by Claire Denis and Juliette Binoche at the 6:30pm screening on March 3
The legendary Claire Denis delivers an understated yet psychologically vivid romantic drama, co-written with her Let the Sunshine In collaborator Christine Angot. On her way to work one day, Sara (Juliette Binoche) spies her ex-lover François (Grégoire Colin) outside of the metro; shortly thereafter, by a seeming coincidence, François gets in touch with Jean (Vincent Lindon), his old friend—and Sara’s husband—to propose they go into business together on a new venture. François’s unexpected reemergence in their lives, and the emotional destabilization that comes with it, propel this finely wrought and melancholic narrative, with Denis’s characteristic knack for capturing the intimate sensuality of everyday life on full display, bolstered by a typically gorgeous score from regular collaborators Tindersticks. An IFC Films release.
