  • DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID

  • Jun 9, 2016 to Aug 26, 2016
  • Location: Lincoln Plaza Cinema
  • Description:

    Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the upcoming release of Benoît Jacquot’s provocative update of the classic novel DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID, starring Léa Seydoux as the titular chambermaid, in her second collaboration with Mr. Jacquot since Farewell, My Queen, and award-winning French actor Vincent Lindon (The Measure of a Man). DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID is scheduled to open on Friday, June 10 in New York (Lincoln Plaza Cinema) and Los Angeles (Royal).

    Léa Seydoux follows in the footsteps of Paulette Goddard and Jeanne Moreau, as Célestine, a resentful young Parisian chambermaid who finds herself exiled to a position in the provinces.
