Our most popular film festival showcases a diverse selection of the very best new French cinema. Highlights from this year’s lineup include the opening night film Divorce, French Style, a whip-smart comedy screened outdoors on the MFA lawn; Swagger, a surreal documentary that brings to life the dreams of eleven teenagers; Slack Bay, a macabre slapstick comedy starring Juliette Binoche; and The Odyssey, a sun-drenched biopic about oceanographer Jacques Cousteau starring Audrey Tautou and Pierre Niney. For a dose of fresh insight into this complex and culturally rich nation, grab a glass of wine from Taste Café and settle in for a visual feast.
All films are presented on DCP in French with English subtitles unless otherwise noted. Tickets and passes on sale June 22.
