"A superior yet highly successful melodrama" - Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
Previewing exclusively on Curzon Home Cinema from 28 December ahead of its cinema release.
A semi-autobiographical novel is the basis of 'Leaving' and 'Summertime' director Catherine Corsini's decades-spanning drama. Rising star Virginie Efira is superb as Rachel, a young woman whose affair in the 1950s with a callous young man (Niels Schneider) results in the birth of a daughter and a relationship that continues across decades. Based on 'Let the Sunshine In' co-screenwriter Christine Angot's controversial novel, Corsini's impeccably directed and moving drama is beautifully made and stunning to look at.
