Summer Hours
(France/2008/103 min)
Directed by Olivier Assayas

The best film of 2009, Olivier Assayas’ Summer Hours follows three grown siblings as they reunite after their mother dies and leaves behind a country house overflowing with valuable art and antiques (on loan from the Musée d’Orsay). With its richly-detailed script and nuanced performances by Binoche and Berling, Summer Hours illuminates the private experience of loss, as well as the practical concerns of settling an estate, with remarkable insight.

Preceded by a short film TBA.
