Léa Seydoux brilliantly grounds Bruno Dumont’s unexpected, unsettling new film, which starts out as a satire of the contemporary news media before steadily spiraling out into something richer and darker. Never one to shy away from provoking his viewers, Dumont (The Life of Jesus, NYFF35) casts Seydoux as France de Meurs, a seemingly unflappable superstar TV journalist whose life is disrupted after she carelessly drives into a young delivery man on a busy Paris street. This accident triggers a series of self-reckonings, as well as a strange romance that proves impossible to shake. France is tragicomic and deliciously ambivalent—a very 21st-century treatment of the difficulty of maintaining identity in a corrosive culture.
Film discussions take place on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. after the streaming week. Join the conversation either in person at ScholarWorks (Rod 301) on online via Zoom (registration required).
Location: In person at Rod Library ScholarSpace and online
