Parent & Baby Screening

A family consisting of two women, a man, and a young girl

Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche come together for the first time in this heartwarming feature from Hirokazu Kore-eda.

Fabienne (Deneuve) is an ageing French movie icon who, despite her momentary lapses in memory, remains a venerable force to be reckoned with. Upon the publication of her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Binoche) returns to Paris from New York with her husband (Ethan Hawke) and their young daughter to commemorate its release.

Sparks immediately begin to fly between the mother-daughter duo when Lumir takes issue with Fabienne’s rose-tinted version of events. Yet, as the past is gradually confronted, their strained relationship takes a poignant journey toward possible reconciliation.

In this charming follow-up to the Palme d’Or-winning Shoplifters, Kore-eda paints a moving portrait of family dynamics and human relationships, featuring exquisite performances from its all-star cast.
