With Lambert Willson, Audrey Tautou, Pierre Niney, Laurent Lucas, and Benjamin Lavernhe  
2016, Drama-Biopic, Rated PG, 2h02, France-Belgium  

Summer 1946. The Cousteau family—Jacques, his wife Simone, and their two children Philippe and Jean-Michel—reside in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean Sea. By day they dive, exploring the depths of the ocean, while by night they watch the stars. It’s paradise on Earth. But Jacques is never content. He longs to explore the world beneath the sea and believes in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the Aqualung, his recently acquired vessel, the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers led by his wife, Jacques is ready to delve where no man has been before…

Presented in partnership with the Washington Square Park Conservancy.
