DC Premiere


An assured debut from writer/director Jennifer Devoldere, this film offers an honest, light-hearted, take on a dysfunctional Jewish family in Paris. While patriarch Eli expects a baby with his new young wife, he attempts to reconcile his tepid relationship with his adult daughter (Mélanie Laurent, Le Rafle and Inglorious Bastards), by reaching out to her ex-boyfriends and volunteering for her new art project.

Mélanie Laurent), Newport Beach Film Festival
