Miami Premiere Engagement!


(Mal de pierres)

Directed by NICOLE GARCIA/France/2017/2hrs.

With Marion Cotillard, Louis Garrel, Alex Brendemühl

Based on the international best-selling novel and starring Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, From the Land of the Moon is the classic story of a free-spirited woman fighting for passionate dreams of true love against all odds. Gabrielle (Cotillard) comes from a small village in the South of France at a a time when her dream of true love is considered scandalous, and even a sign of insanity. Her parents marry her to José (Àlex Brendemühl), but Gabrielle vows that she will never love José and lives like a prisoner bound by the constraints of conventional post World War II society until the day she is sent away to a hospital in the Alps. There she meets André Sauvage (Louis Garrel), a dashing injured veteran of the Indochinese War, who rekindles the passion buried inside her. Will anyone dare rob her of her right to follow her dreams? (In French with English subtitles)

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Film Festival Competition

“THE INGREDIENTS OF AN OLD FASHIONED ROMANTIC WEEPIE ARE GIVEN CLASS AND CONVICTION from director Nicole Garcia whose elegant restraint helps to ground the more fanciful elements in some sense of reality… Incurable romantics should happily surrender to its allure and the more cynical have the reward of eventually discovering that there was more going on here that initially meets the eye.”-Allan Hunter, Screen International

“COTILLARD’S PERFORMANCE IS LUMINOUS THROUGHOUT, enriching the willful heroine with the depth of a single obsession.”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
