Directed by Bruno Dumont
Pre-orders are generally sent several days in advance of street date.
Writer Bruno Dumont
Léa Seydoux brilliantly holds the center of Bruno Dumont’s unexpected new film, which starts out as a satire of contemporary news media before steadily spiraling out into something richer and darker. Set in contemporary Paris, France stars Seydoux as France de Meurs, a seemingly unflappable superstar TV journalist juggling her studio show, reporting on a distant war, and the rush of family life. Her high-profile world is turned upside down after she injures a delivery man in a traffic accident, triggering a series of self-reckonings and a strange romance that proves impossible to shake. Never one to shy away from provoking his viewers, Dumont’s latest is tragicomic and deliciously ambivalent – a very 21st-century treatment of the difficulty of maintaining identity in a corrosive culture.
DVD Extras Include:
"A star vehicle for Léa Seydoux, whose acting is these days hitting a new level of richness."
“Dumont delivers wild twists at a hectic pace, creating a kaleidoscopic frenzy of unreality and turning the daily life of a celebrity into a hallucinatory, media-saturated distortion.”
“Dazzling. A fantastically pleasurable cinematic delight… bolstered by one helluva committed Lea Seydoux performance.”
“Dumont’s shift across the last decade into outright absurdity, and his exuberant mistrust of form, is grounded by Seydoux’s star persona.”
"A biting and complex satire on our relationship with the media.”
"Bruno Dumont examines a France that has been hijacked by social media and 24/7 news. A violent satire, shot through with lightning bolts of melodrama, interpreted by Lea Seydoux gone full kamikaze."
"The director offers Léa Seydoux her most resplendent role to date, that of a woman destroyed by the media complex in which she is trapped."
