  • Description:

    Selected as this year’s Berlin Film Festival's Opening Night film, FAREWELL, MY QUEEN marks the return of acclaimed director Benoît Jacquot (A Single Girl, Seventh Heaven, Sade, Deep in the Woods,) and brilliantly captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution.

    LITTLE WHITE LIES, the generational ensemble dramatic comedy by Guillaume Canet, the writer-director of Tell No One, stars Academy Award® winners Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, The Dark Knight Rises) and Jean Dujardin (The Artist) along with François Cluzet (Tell No One, The Intouchables) and Gilles Lellouche (Point Blank, Mesrine), LITTLE WHITE LIES follows a close-knit group of friends whose bonds are tested and strengthened over a summer holiday.
