BLIND DATE (UN PEU, BEAUCOUP, AVEUGLÉMENT)
Prepare yourself for the unlikeliest of rom-com scenarios, in which the two would-be lovers not only don’t meet or see each other, but agree to not even know each other’s names! This unique feat is carried off with aplomb in Festival-favourite and César Award winning actor Clovis Cornillac’s debut as a director.
THE MEASURE OF A MAN (LA LOI DU MARCHÉ)
The iconic actor Vincent Lindon (Augustine ) returns with The Measure of a Man, a moving social drama that scooped the Best Actor Award at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2015.
Lindon plays Thierry, a middle-aged man, long out of work and short on prospects. His is a precarious existence, surviving with his beloved wife and developmentally challenged son on meagre state benefits while subject to the corroding humiliation of pointless job interviews and skills training. When Thierry finally does land a job as a Head of Security, he is thrust into a world of stark moral choices in which he discovers that his job not only pays, it costs.
HEATWAVE (COUP DE CHAUD)
Rising star Karim Leklou delivers a breakout performance as the deeply troubled Josef, an outsider in his own town, whose behaviour becomes more and more erratic and threatening. But as the hot weather wears on and the villagers’ patience wears thinner, questions are raised. Is Josef just a scapegoat for the villagers’ sins? And does he deserve to be punished – or even killed?
