Things to Come

NAME OF FILM: THINGS TO COME

DIRECTOR(S): Mia Hansen-Løve

STARRING: Isabelle Hubbert, Andre Marcon and Roman Kolinka

GENRE: Drama Film

SYNOPSIS: What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert, in a radiant performance) is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family (including frequent visits to her drama queen mother, played by the legendary Édith Scob). But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of 25 years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself. Winner of the Best Director award at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, the new film from Mia Hansen-Løve (“Eden”) is an uncommonly intelligent, soul-searching look at what it means to create a life of one’s own.
