MY KING (Mon Roi)
MY KING (Mon Roi)

MY KING (Mon Roi), a bold and passionate tale of amour fou directed by Maïwenn (Polisse) will open in New York on August 12, and in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Royal on August 26, 2016 via Film Movement.

A national release will follow.

The film starring Emanuelle Bercot, Vincent Cassel, Louis Garrel and Isild Le Besco, had its world premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, where Emmanuelle Bercot won the Best Actress Prize. The film subsequently was nominated for eight César Awards including Best Picture, Actress and Actor.

Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot) is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident. Dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers, she takes time to look back on the turbulent ten-year relationship she experienced with Georgio (Vincent Cassel). Why did they love each other? Who is this man whom she loved so deeply? How did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, a difficult process of healing is in front of her, physical work which may finally set her free. Maïwenn’s follow-up to Polisse, a Cannes Jury-Prize winner, features two of the year’s most committed performances by Emmanuelle Bercot and Vincent Cassel, who dominate every frame of the film. Together they create what is likely to become one of France’s classic tales of amour fou.
