DOMESTIC LIFE
2013, Films Distribution, 94 min, France, Dir: Isabelle Czajka

This piercing adaptation of British writer Rachel Cusk’s Arlington Park shows how restrictive gender roles can be even in supposedly progressive households. Juliette (Emmanuelle Devos), husband Thomas (Laurent Poitrenaux) and their two kids move to a wealthy Paris suburb, where a pompous businessman at a dinner party and an old classmate remind Juliette that women’s aspirations are still treated as subservient to men’s. In French with English subtitles.
