This movie sparked a controversy during last year’s presidential election in France. The movie portrays a charismatic thirtysomething single mother (Emilie Dequenne) who gets “hired” by the far-right party to become its representative in an underprivileged town in Northern France. The film sparked uproar within the real-life National Front party.
It is said that this movie was a fiction very closely inspired by the last electoral French campaign that saw right wing leader Marine Le Pen reach a peak in polls.

Alliance Française de Napa Valley is excited to show this movie which has a particular take on society’s illnesses and dangerous passion for extremism. Lucas Belvaux has always been a very singular and powerful voice for political cinema, mixing genres and expressing his views thanks to very strong cinematic skills.
