With his romantic, sexy and slyly funny new film, Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) once again transports us to a singular time and place in cinematic history: France in the late 1960s. Based on an autobiographical novel by actress Anne Wiazemsky (played here by Stacy Martin), the film recounts the ups and downs of her marriage to renowned filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel). As Godard’s increasingly radical and iconoclastic work divides his audiences, artistic ferment channels into the social activism surging in France, and their married life includes street protests, political debates and a possible shutdown of the Cannes Film Festival. In French with English subtitles. Also starring Bérénice Béjo. Writer/Director: Michel Hazanavicius.
