May 11, 2015 $10.00 - $12.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – Veteran French director Jean-Jacques Zilbermann (He’s My Girl, Man is a Woman, Not Everybody’s Lucky Enough to Have Communist Parents) sets his engaging new drama in postwar Paris where Hélène (Julie Depardieu), a young Auschwitz survivor rebuilds her life while searching for her friends Lily and Rose (Johanna ter Steege, Suzanne Clément). When the women are finally reunited, they share a watershed vacation in the seaside town of Berck-Plage, enjoying the intimacies of life, love and faith. This emotionally complex film about the sustaining power of women’s friendship was inspired by the director’s mother and her annual vacation with the friends she made in the camps. Don’t miss this masterful film starring a trio of award-winning actresses.
