A tale of love, reason, and realizing you’re not the center of the universe
Bernard, a film location scout, tours a repossessed and crumbling French château. Over the course of an afternoon, he falls for both the place and its owner’s flirtatious representative, Maggie, who recounts the story of an influential popular-science book written and set there. But is their present-tense connection for real, or just a projection of the book’s 17th-century characters? Starring Cara Theobold (Downton Abbey), Gethin Anthony (Game of Thrones) and inspired by Bernard de Fontenelle’s Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds. In English. Not Rated. Director: Oliver Krimpas, Screenwriter: Jonathan Kiefer (UK 2020) 79 min.
