Bruno Dumont’s eleventh feature stars Léa Seydoux as a celebrity journalist who falls out of love with fame after a freak car accident.

Penned by Dumont, France chronicles the frenetic life of a famous TV star and journalist who becomes caught in the trappings of celebrity and subsequently overcome by a spiral of events which ultimately lead to her downfall.

Determined to leave her tragic identity behind her, she redeems herself through hard work and finds her way back to her former life; though this time she’s equipped with a sense of irony and ridicule.

“Dumont has now made a satire of the blackest kind… ” - Giovanni Marchini Camia, Sight and Sound

Screening as part of the 29th French Film Festival UK.
