France starring Léa Seydoux Opens December 10

Kino Lorber is proud to announce the release of FRANCE, a satirical drama set in contemporary Paris, Léa Seydoux stars as France de Meurs, a seemingly unflappable superstar TV journalist whose career, homelife, and psychological stability are turned upside down after she carelessly drives into a young delivery man on a busy street. This unexpected eruption of reality triggers a series of self-reckonings as well as a strange romance that proves impossible to shake. As France attempts to slow down and retreat into a simpler, anonymous life, her fame continues to pursue her. Starting out as a tragicomic satire of the news media, writer-director Bruno Dumont’s provocative new film spirals out into something darker as it examines the difficulty of maintaining one’s sense of self in a corrosive culture. 
 
FRANCE will open in New York (Film at Lincoln Center) and Los Angeles (Nuart) on Friday, December 10th followed by a national rollout.

One of the most singular and admired French writer-directors of the last two decades, Bruno Dumont’s award-winning body of work includes The Life of Jesus (winner of the Caméra d’Or Special Mention at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival), Humanity (winner of Cannes’ Grand Prix and Acting Awards for its two non-professional leads); the road movie Twentynine Palms, shot in Joshua Tree National Park desert (2003 Venice Film Festival); Dumont won his second Cannes Grand Prix for Flanders, followed by Hadewijch and Outside Satan, two films dealing with religion and mysticism. He cast Juliette Binoche in the biopic Camille Claudel 1915 and the comedy Slack Bay, named by Cahiers du Cinéma one of the best 10 films of 2016. Dumont’s highly popular comic miniseries Lil’ Quinquin were followed by the musical Jeannette: The Chilhood of Joan of Arc (2017 Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight) and Joan of Arc (winner of Special Mention at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival's Un Certain Regard). FRANCE is his 11th film.

One of 2021’s Best Films - Cahiers du Cinéma
 
“Dumont delivers wild twists at a hectic pace, creating a kaleidoscopic frenzy of unreality and turning the daily life of a celebrity into a hallucinatory, media-saturated distortion.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
 
“Bruno Dumont offers Léa Seydoux her most resplendent role to date, that of a woman destroyed by the media complex in which she is trapped." – Le Monde
 
"Bruno Dumont examines a France that has been hijacked by social media and 24/7 news. A violent satire, shot through with lightning bolts of melodrama, interpreted by Lea Seydoux gone full kamikaze." –  Premiere Magazine

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the Friday, October 29th release of the dark  thriller ONLY THE ANIMALS, directed and written by French director Dominik Moll (With a Friend like Harry), starring Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Denis Ménochet and Laure Calamy in New York (Quad Cinema) and Los Angeles (Nuart), followed by additional cities.
 
Following the disappearance of the glamorous and secretive Evelyne Ducat (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) during a blizzard in the highlands of southern France, the lives of five people inextricably linked to Evelyne are brought together to devastating effect as the local police investigate the case.
Divided into five chapters, writer-director Dominik Moll’s murder mystery features a sophisticated multi-pronged narrative structure that keeps viewers on the edge. Switching viewpoints, it gradually reveals the secret connections between a lonely farmer, an unfaithful husband and wife, a lovelorn waitress and an African internet scam artist, exposing a world of greed, lust, betrayal, and loneliness, from isolated French mountain villages to the bustling streets of Abidjan.
 
After growing up in Germany and France, Dominik Moll studied film at City College in New York and the French National Film School IDHEC (now called FEMIS).  A regular of the Cannes, Berlin, and Venice Film Festivals, he is best known for his dark hit comedy With a Friend Like Harry, winner of four Césars including Best Director, and the psychological thriller Lemming starring Charlotte Gainsbourg.
 
"Like ‘Fargo' remixed with ‘Babel' by way of Atom Egoyan... starts off as an intimate rural mystery and blossoms into a global affair where several strangers wind up connected in unexpected ways.” —  Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
 
"Moll has given us this audacious, witty, and absorbing mystery thriller, a tale of adultery, and amour fou, with a gamey touch of the macabre.” — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Did you know that The Hemp Exchange has created a "CBD review website"? The website explains that this is an online resource for anyone interested in learning about CBD, hemp, or any other topic relating to this cutting-edge "alternative medicine". CBD is what gives hemp its healing capabilities. So, who created this site? It was created by CFAH, a corporation dedicated to researching and disseminating information on the medicinal uses of all things hemp, organic, and edible. According to the CFAH website, CFAH experts include:

CFAH is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to educating consumers about the benefits of CBD products. In order to join, you must first become a CFAH member. Once a member, you will be sent email updates, information on CFAH events, CFAH news, educational tools, and CFAH expert CBD reviewers. CBD review websites, such as this one, are created in order to inform consumers as to the positive results of using CBD products.

Why do I think these CBD review websites are so important? Well, because there are far too many negative reviews for many products on the market today. If you have read some of these reviews, you have found that many products claim to be natural and safe only to find that they can cause dangerous side effects, which include depression, seizures, and hallucinations. As a result of these dangerous ingredients, many children, teens, and adults are unable to use certain products due to these very unfortunate side effects. This is why I believe that it is so important to look for unbiased and professional reviews from qualified professionals who are knowledgeable about the potential benefits of CFAH products.

The second reason why CFAH has become so popular is because of the many different kinds of supplements that are available to patients with Autism, cerebral palsy, and other developmental disabilities. The fact of the matter is that not every product works for every individual. By having access to an online CFAH resource, parents can determine if a product might be right for their child before trying it. As you may imagine, this type of resource also makes it easier for parents to avoid scams and fake CFAH product testimonials.

Many CFAH review websites also review CGAmeric, Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Ginseng, and Curcumin. These ingredients can be found at local grocery stores and are often used in homeopathic remedies. By taking advantage of these types of naturally-based CFAH products, your child can benefit tremendously from their nutritional needs. The good news is that many of these natural ingredients have been proven safe and effective for children.

Finally, parents who want to educate themselves about CFAH products should make use of CFAH websites to learn more about the different ways that each supplement can help their children. A parent who is just beginning to research CFAH should begin by reading through the CFAH website and supplement chapter, looking for helpful information about the herbs and vitamins involved. If you do not have time to research this information yourself, you can always enlist the help of a local CFAH expert. With a little bit of education, you will no doubt find that CFAH products are right for your child.

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the September 3rd release of WHO YOU THINK I AM, writer-director Safy Nebbou’s romantic cyber-drama turned psychological thriller, based on the best-selling novel by Camille Laurens starring Oscar®-winning actress Juliette Binoche. WHO YOU THINK I AM is scheduled to open in theaters on Friday, September 3, 2021 in NY (Quad Cinema), LA (Landmark), Pasadena and Encino (Laemmle), Boston (Kendall) and Philadelphia (Ritz) followed by a national roll out.
 
Ghosted by her hunky twentysomething lover, Claire (Binoche - balancing cunning and vulnerability), a middle-aged professor and single mom, creates a fake Facebook profile to do a little undetected online snooping. But when her 24-year-old avatar “Clara”  is friended by her ex’s equally attractive roommate (François Civil), superficial correspondence quickly escalates towards intense intimacy and uncontrollable obsession. Adapted from Camille Laurens’ best-selling novel—and co-scripted by Julie Peyr, a regular collaborator of Arnaud Desplechin—Who You Think I Am blends genres and bends reality to dizzying effect.
 
Writer-director Safy Nebbou films include The Giraffe’s NeckMark of an AngelThe Other Dumas and In the Forests of Siberia. His stage credits include the 2017 adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes from a Marriage with Laetitia Casta and Raphaël Personnaz. WHO YOU THINK I AM is his sixth feature film.
 
Acclaimed French-Lebanese jazz composer Ibrahim Maalouf wrote the score of WHO YOU THINK I AM. He won the César and Lumière Awards for Best Score for Nebbou’s In the Forests of Siberia and was nominated for a César in 2015 for Yves Saint LaurentMaalouf has worked with such luminaries as StingSalif KeitaAmadou & MariamVanessa ParadisJuliette Greco, and Archie Shepp.
 
“With Binoche once more on beguiling form… For anyone who’s ever been catfished or ghosted on the dating trail - her evocation of exhilarated human connection and terrified self-sabotage is uncomfortably easy to empathize with” —Guy Lodge, Variety
 
"A compulsively watchable drama which taps into some genuinely intriguing themes.” Wendy Ide, Screen International
