Father of My Children

One of the great discoveries at Cannes (Winner - Un Certain Regard - Special Jury Prize), as well as New Directors/New Films and the Toronto Film Festival, is a deeply thoughtful and intelligent study of a family in crisis. At its center is Gregoire, a handsome, charming and workaholic movie producer, with a hidden problem. When Gregoire's troubles reach a dramatic breaking point, his family's resilience is tested. Embraced by audiences worldwide, rising young director Mia Hansen-Love has delivered a beautiful film about the nature of love and the mysteries of life. Both affecting and poignant, 'The Father Of My Children' contains "some wonderfully lyrical moments of happiness. A quieter, deeper meditation on art, life, and what truly endures."
