GRAND CENTRAL
2013, Ad Vitam Distribution, 94 min, France, Austria, Dir: Rebecca Zlotowski

Gary (Tahar Rahim) gets a maintenance job at a nuclear power plant in the French countryside – risky work made even riskier when he falls for a coworker’s fiancée (Léa Seydoux of BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR). “A love triangle so intense it’s practically radioactive foregrounds GRAND CENTRAL, an engrossing, superbly acted working-class melodrama.” – Scott Foundas, Variety. In French with English subtitles.


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.
