"Pictorially intense, erotically charged... Emmanuelle BÈart is radiant."
—Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
Opening with the fall of Paris to the Germans in June 1940, AndrÈ TÈchinÈ's Strayed is an atmospheric story of a widowed schoolteacher (Emmanuelle BÈart) who finds refuge with her children in a deserted chateau.
In the chaos of flight through the countryside, they're joined by a 17-year-old delinquent who has miraculously outwitted the Nazis. Together they form a new makeshift family sheltered from the turmoil of the world at war. (95 mins.)
