First-time filmmaker Léonor Serraille and the dazzling Laetitia Dosch burst onto the scene with 'Jeune Femme', a raucous and playful portrait of a woman in her early 30s in Paris. Following in the footsteps of Frances Ha and Fleabag, it’s a sometimes heartbreaking, often hilarious and always relatable nod to the chaos and candour of modern life. Neurotic and manic, bold and magnetic, Paula (Dosch) is a muddle of contradictions. Fresh from an unceremonious dumping by her boyfriend of 10 years, she finds herself wandering the streets of Paris - jobless, homeless and single - with no idea of what life holds for her next. At 31 years old, with little to show for it but a kidnapped cat and a sense of adventure, she sets out to reinvent herself - new job, new friends, new life - and finds that these things never do come easily. Testament to the talent of its nearly all-female filmmaking crew, 'Jeune Femme' picked up the coveted Camera d’Or prize for best first feature at the Cannes Film Festival 2017. Anarchic, complicated and undeniably charming, this is the French hot-mess heroine we’ve long been waiting for. ★★★★ "What makes ‘Jeune Femme’ so satisfying is its restless energy and attention to visual detail" - Alice Savile, Time Out ★★★★ "Fizzing with non-judgemental empathy and cinematic flair, this is a magnificent debut" - David Parkinson, Empire ★★★★ "Laetitia Dosch is breathtakingly charismatic" - Christina Newland, Little White Lies ★★★★ "A vibrant account of Parisian life" - Kevin Maher, The Times ★★★★ "Funny and funky-subtle" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★★ "A white-knuckle sense of emotional freefall powers every fraught scene" - Tara Brady, The Irish Times ★★★★★ "A superbly sympathetic and spikily comedic portrait" - Mark Kermode's Film of the Week, The Observer
