"A film of love, joy, sadness and hope that understands how complex our emotions are and does beautiful justice to them."—Los Angeles Times

"Insightful, mature, and extremely accomplished… Guaranteed not to leave a dry eye in the house."—Screen International

Recalling last year's warm and insightful French family drama Summer Hours,  The Father of My Children follows Grégoire, a Parisian film producer who has it all — a beautiful wife, three adorable daughters, wealth and a buzzing career. On the surface he seems invincible, maintaining humor and charm as he tirelessly juggles the demands of his production company with his family's needs. But when Grégoire's reserves — both financial and emotional — reach a dramatic breaking point, his family's love and resilience is tested. Winner of the Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and featured at the Toronto and London Film Festivals, The Father of My Children is an extraordinarily perceptive new drama from emerging young talent Mia Hansen-Løve, and a deeply moving portrait of family in tumult. (110 mins., 35mm)
