Shortly after the British evacuation at Dunkirk, the German Occupation reaches the small French town of Bussy. When a Nazi officer (Matthais Schoenaerts, Rust and Bone; Far From the Madding Crowd) is billeted with Madame Angellier (Kristin Scott Thomas) she barely conceals her contempt, but her daughter-in-law Lucille (Michelle Williams) is drawn to his charm and sensitivity. Based on the wartime manuscript written by Irene Nemirovsky (who died in Auschwitz before she completed the novel), Suite Francaise is a moving story of love, divided loyalties and sacrifice, with superb performances from two of the most exciting actors working in movies today.

"A handsome and intelligent adaptation… nuanced and compelling." Dave Calhoun, Time Out

"Rewardingly complex and disarmingly compassionate." Mark Kermode, The Observer

“One of the year’s best films. An urgent, illuminating dive into the headwaters of second-wave feminism. Wise, moving, upsetting, and sometimes funny. That defiant sisterhood changed the workplace, our sexual politics, our language. She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry is the best filmed account of how that happened you could ever expect to see.”

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
