Things To Come
CAST: Isabelle Huppert, Andre Marcon, Roman Kolinka DIRECTOR: Mia Hansen-Love TUESDAY FILM SERIES
Nathalie teaches philosophy at a high school in Paris. She is passionate about her job and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her very possessive mother. One day, Nathalie's husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With freedom thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent her life.
Visually arresting, but never precious, it's filled with ideas that have relevance to actual life, ideas that are based on a moral conviction that a question well-posed is far more valuable than an easy answer.Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
Following her triumph in Elle, French screen legend Isabelle Huppert scores another bullseye with this delicate tale of philosophy professor starting over.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Huppert is extraordinary-she reveals everything even when you think she's showing nothing-and she's the perfect actress, right now, for Hansen-Love's fine-grained perceptiveness.Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
