Summer Hours

Universally acclaimed by critics, the multiple award-winning "Summer Hours" is the great contemporary French filmmaker Olivier Assayas's most personal film to date. Three siblings, played by Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, and Jeremie Renier, must decide what to do with the country estate and objects they've inherited from their mother. From this simple story, Assayas creates an exquisitely nuanced drama about the material of globalized modern living. Naturalistic and unsentimental, "Summer Hours" is that rare film that pays respect to family by treating it with honesty.
