Francois Ozon's latest film is a mischievous melodrama filled with witty suspense. Based on Ruth Rendell's seductive mystery fiction, this sly satire observes contemporary bourgeoisie and its transgressions.
Claire (Anaïs Demoustier), devastated by the death of her best friend, makes a promise to watch over her husband (Romain Duris) and newborn child. Battling through a fog of depression and a lack of responsiveness from her own husband, she reluctantly drags herself to the plush suburban home of her friend’s widower only to make a startling discovery about the form his grief has taken.
The film will be followed by a live Q&A session with director Francois Ozon.
