“Deeply moving…an exquisite chamber piece made with the kind of sensitivity and nuance that’s become almost a lost art.” – Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
An elegant, moving tale of an unexpected romance between a married man (Vincent Lindon) and his son’s homeroom teacher (Sandrine Kiberlain, Lindon’s former wife) — and their attempt to keep their desires from turning into a full-blown affair. A modern-day Brief Encounter, crafted with enormous grace and subtlety by acclaimed French director Stéphane Brizé (I Am Not Here To Be Loved, Among Adults).
