Another great benefit of being a Wexner Center member is the opportunity to see a terrific film screened just for you! Join us this month for The Page Turner, One of the most acclaimed and successful French films in recent years. It has been favorably compared to the work of Alfred Hitchcock, Claude Chabrol, Roman Polanski, and Michael Haneke.

A young woman gains employment as a page turner for the famous concert pianist who thwarted her promising musical career as a child, setting in motion a number of deliciously tense opportunities for revenge. Director Dercourt is a professional musician as well as a filmmaker. On this film he discovered "how similar the mechanisms of suspense are to the techniques of writing music." Deborah Francois delivers as a star-making performance as the title character in her first film since her debut performance as the mother in the Dardennes' L'Enfant. (85 mins., 35mm)
