Join us for a special after-hours showing of a foreign film from Kanopy's extensive catalog. Light appetizers will be served. Please register. We will be showing Farewell My Queen (2012, 101 min., Dir: Benoit Jacquot, In French with English subtitles).
Farewell My Queen: Marking the return of
acclaimed director Benoit Jacquot (A Single Girl), FAREWELL, MY QUEEN
brilliantly captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility
and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court of Marie Antoinette in the
final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution. Based on the
best-selling novel by Chantal Thomas, this film stars Lea Seydoux (The Lobster)
as one of Marie's ladies-in-waiting, and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), who gives her best performance to
date as the ill-fated Queen. Nominated for Best Film
at the Berlin International Film Festival. Nominated for Best Actress (Lea
Seydoux), Best Director, and Best Film at the Cesar Awards.
