*1pm - MUSTANG
<http://www.sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2015_mustang.htm> *
*(97 min) by Deniz Gamze Ergüven, 2015 - DRAMA*
It’s the beginning of the summer in a remote Black Sea coastal village in
northern Turkey, and Lale and her four sisters wildly begin their summer
break. A villager sees them horsing around with boys and informs their
grandmother who has raised them. Fearing the girls' virtue and their
marriage prospects have been compromised, she decides, along with the
girls’ uncle, to engage in a systematic campaign to tame them into
traditional female roles. Directed by first-time Turkish filmmaker Deniz
Gamze Ergüven and co-written by French writer/director Alice Winocour, and
presented in its original Turkish version, Mustang is a wonderful example
of France's long-time interest in producing films around the world, and it
has been chosen to represent France at the 2016 Academy Awards. Besides
Mustang, France is involved in the production of 13 films among the 81
considered for the 2016 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

*3:05pm - THE MEASURE OF A MAN
<http://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2015_loi-du-marche.htm>*
*(La Loi du marché, 93 min) by Stéphane Brizé, 2015 – SOCIAL DRAMA*
Thierry (Vincent Lindon, in a superb performance recognized with the Best
Actor award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival) is 51 years old and has been
unemployed for 20 months. We follow him on his quest for a much needed job
and as he tries to keep his life in order, with his wife and their special
needs son. Lacking any other options, he ends up taking a job as a security
guard in a supermarket, a position that soon puts him into a thorny moral
dilemma. A poignant and unforgettable film about the everyday social
cruelty of today’s modern world.


*5:05pm - ONE WILD MOMENT
<http://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2015_un-moment-d-egarement.htm>
**(Un Moment d'égarement, 105 min) by Jean-François Richet, 2015 - COMEDY*
Two longtime friends Laurent and Antoine (portrayed by two of France’s most
charismatic and compelling leading men, Vincent Cassel and François Cluzet)
take their respective teenage daughters on a beach vacation in beautiful
Corsica. One evening at the beach, Antoine’s daughter, Louna, seduces
Laurent. She is in love, but for Laurent it was a mistake… Upset at
Laurent's rejection, and without revealing her lover's name, Louna confides
in her father, who tries by any means to discover who his daughter's lover
is. How long can the secret be kept hidden?... This remake of Claude
Berri’s 1977 cult film (Hollywood’s own 1984 remake, Blame it on Rio, was
directed by Stanley Donen and starred Michael Caine, Joseph Bologna and a
young Demi Moore) was one a box office hit in France this summer!

*7:15pm - ONCE IN A LIFETIME
<http://www.sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2015_heritiers.htm> *
*(Les Héritiers, 105 min) by Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar, 2014 – DRAMA*
In this inspirational drama based on a true story, high school history
teacher Anne Gueguen (the always perfect Ariane Ascaride) has to face her
worst nightmare: a multicultural classroom full of struggling and tough
inner-city kids. But Anne has a quality that these students don’t encounter
often: she actually cares about them, and she has an idea to inspire them.
Over the objections of the head of the school, she challenges the class to
enter a national history contest with a project on children and teenage
victims of the Nazi Regime. At first, the students are reluctant, but
working together will give them the confidence to achieve more than they
ever thought possible... A feel-good film for all audiences!

*9:25pm - WELCOME TO NEW YORK
<http://www.sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2015_welcome_to_nyc.htm> *
*(125 min) by Abel Ferrara, 2014 - DRAMA*
Inspired by one of the most high-profile public implosions in recent
memory, Welcome to New York follows a prominent French financier (Gérard
Depardieu) as he spirals out of control during a drug and sex-fueled trip
to America—culminating in a shocking incident involving a hotel maid and
his subsequent arrest. Jacqueline Bisset co-stars as his wife in this
provocative portrait of a man whose fall from grace sent shockwaves
throughout the world. In the film, the protagonist’s name is “Devereaux,”
but he is clearly inspired by the former International Monetary Fund (IMF)
chief and one-time French presidential hopeful, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who
in 2011 was arrested in New York on charges of assaulting a hotel maid. The
mighty Depardieu gives a fearless performance in this
ripped-from-the-headlines saga of sin and sleaze from boundary-pushing Abel
Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, King of New York), directing his first French
co-production.
