his year’s Cannes Film Festival hit. Starring Lea Seydoux (BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, and the new Bond film NO TIME TO DIE).

Paris, today.

France de Meurs is a star journalist running between a television set, a distant war and the hustle and bustle of her busy family life.

Her frantic high-profile world is suddenly turned upside down after a traffic accident in which she injures a pedestrian. This unexpected irruption of reality calls everything into question.

As France attempts to slow down and retreat into a simple anonymous life, her fame continues to pursue her until a mystified love affair seems to put an end to her quest.
