Synopsis

Paris, summer 2020. Actors from “la Comédie Française”, France’s most prestigious theater, rehearse a new play, an adaptation of Marcel Proust’s The Guermantes Way. When the show is suddenly canceled, the drama group decides to go ahead with it anyway, in the name of art and for the joy of acting together.

Director

Christophe Honoré

He arrived in Paris in the 1990s, where he began working in cinema. After debuting with the short film Nous deux (2001), his feature films show him as a very personal creator, with a taste marked by a certain pop romanticism, and with an extraordinary ability to integrate his idols into his particular and very recognizable imaginary. D’A dedicated a retrospective to him in 2019.
