SIBYL directed by Justine Triet Opens September 11 in Virtual Cinemas

Music Box Films is proud to announce that French director Justine Triet’s darkly comic psychodrama SIBYL, a selection of the Cannes, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, will be released in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, September 11 at Film at Lincoln Center and Laemmle's Virtual Cinemas, followed by other top markets throughout the US.

Sibyl (Virginie Efira), a jaded psychotherapist, abruptly decides to leave her practice to return to her first passion: writing. But her newest patient Margot (Adèle Exarchopoulos), a troubled up-and-coming actress, proves to be a source of inspiration that is far too tempting. Fascinated to the point of obsession, Sibyl becomes increasingly involved in Margot’s tumultuous life while negotiating her own demons.

In her second collaboration with rising star Virginie Efira, writer-director Justine Triet has created heroines of intense complexity, seamlessly intertwining past and present while maintaining a delicate balance between drama and acidic farce.

Justine Triet graduated from Paris’ École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Following documentary and narrative short films, she made her debut feature with La Bataille de Solférino (Age of Panic), which earned her a César nomination for Best First Film. Her second feature, In Bed with Victoria, starring Virginie Efira, opened the 2016 Cannes Critics’ Week and received five César nominations including Best Film and Best Actress. SIBYL is her third feature.

"Justine Triet's second highly pleasurable collaboration with actress Virginie Efira is a witty, slinky psychodrama… Seals the arrival of Efira … A first-class leading lady of consistently expanding range and élan — with the emotional honesty and deadpan pluck to pull off the more outrageous character turns." - Guy Lodge, Variety
