We Suggest: "Victoria" at Summerhall

Sunday 28 April 2019 17:00-18:30

In association with the French Film Festival UK, Summerhall will be screening Justine Triet’s Victoria.

An amusing contemporary romp about a single mother whose personal and professional life are as volatile as an active volcano. The ambitious lawyer Victoria (Virginie Efira from Family to Rent and An Impossible Love), finds herself at a friend’s wedding where she runs into Sam (Vincent Lacoste), a former dealer she once defended in court, and who’s now looking to be her legal intern and/or man slave. She also crosses paths with Vincent (Melvil Poupaud), who’s engaged in a stormy relationship with Eve (Alice Daquet).

This second feature from writer-director Justine Triet (Age of Panic) which opened Critics’ Week at a recent Cannes Film Festival, explores the balance of parenthood, romance and career.
