Petite Maman (U)

2 young girls sitting side by side

Beloved French director Céline Sciamma brings us a sublime modern fairy-tale about the quiet wonder of mother-daughter relationships.

After her grandmother’s death, while helping her mother clear out her childhood home, eight-year-old Nelly begins to explore the surrounding woodland and encounters a strangely familiar girl her own age. Instantly forming a connection with this mysterious new friend, Nelly embarks on a formative flight of fancy that encourages her to come to terms with this newfound loss. 

Featuring exceptional central performances from real-life twins Joséphine and Gabrielle Sanz, Sciamma’s warm and gently profound new film mixes the intimate with the fantastical with her characteristically delicate touch, weaved together into a tale of childhood, memory and loss that will resonate with audiences young and old.
