Antoinette in the Cévennes
Antoinette in the Cévennes (M)
1 Hour 35 minutes
An Official Selection of the 2020 Cannes International Film Festival, writer/director Caroline Vignal’s hilarious and life-affirming comedy sensation ANTOINETTE IN THE CÉVENNES stars the wonderful Laure Calamy (Call My Agent!, Aurore) as a woman who finds herself on a journey of self-discovery in somewhat unexpected circumstances.
40-something primary school teacher Antoinette (Calamy, in a career-making turn) has been eagerly looking forward to a long-planned weekend escape with her married lover Vladimir (C’est la vie!’s Benjamin Lavernhe), the father of one of her pupils. However their plans are upended by his wife’s booking of a surprise hiking trip in the picturesque Cévennes mountains in the South of France (a six-day trek made famous by best-selling author Robert Louis Stevenson).
Completely unversed in the ways of the wilderness, the spurned Antoinette impulsively decides to follow them, and once paired with an unlikely companion - an obstinate but evidently wise grey donkey named Patrick - discovers much, much more than she bargained for...
Carried by the remarkable Calamy, Vignal's wonderfully mischievous film offers both Antoinette and audiences an uproarious and poignant reminder of the virtues of independence, and that the journey, not the destination, is often the reward. Buoyed by rave reviews and phenomenal word of mouth, this understated, heartfelt charmer outperformed several US blockbusters, becoming one of France’s biggest hits of the year.

Live Play On Stage: Orson's Shadow tells the story of an ill-fated theatrical collaboration based on real events bringing together five iconic figures in the history of stage and screen. These characters can't but help to be entangled in a battle of egos, the tragic decline of a career, the breakdown of a tumultuous marriage and the farcical production of an absurdest play all for the sake of art.
In 1960, acerbic and uncompromising drama critic Kenneth Tynan has decided to convince his friend Orson Welles to direct Sir Laurence Olivier in Ionesco’s newest masterpiece Rhinoceros. Larry plays alongside co-star and future Mrs Oliver Joan Plowright who is more in tune with the new wave of theatre in England whilst the glorified yet deteriorating Vivien Leigh tries to make sense of her own life and marriage to Olivier.
