FFF17 Things to Come
After Father Of My Children, Goodbye First Love and Eden, acclaimed writer/director Mia Hansen-Løve’s poignant new feature is a resonant and affecting portrait of a fifty-something woman who, after living comfortably for many years, must suddenly reinvent her life.
Nathalie (2017 Golden Globe-winner Isabelle Huppert) teaches philosophy at a college in Paris. She’s passionate about her work and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking to the next generation. Married with two grownup children, she devotes her spare time to the books she publishes as a sideline, to former students who have become friends and, above all, to her very possessive mother (the great Édith Scob). But one day, Nathalie’s husband Heinz (André Marcon) announces he is leaving her for another woman, the first of a series of events that will upend Nathalie’s world, and leave her to completely reassess her future. Screening in the Alliance Française French Film Festival 2017.
