For A Woman

Directed by Diane Kurys | Written by Diane Kurys

In her mid-thirties, Anne still knows practically nothing of her family’s past. After her mother’s death, Anne discovers old photos and letters that convince her to take a closer look at her parents’ life after the concentration camps of World War II. Her research reveals the existence of a mysterious uncle everyone seems intent on forgetting entirely. As she closes in on a discovery she didn’t expect, her father grows ever more ill, and may take the family secret to his grave. In a journey that stretches from post-war France and to the 1980s, Anne’s destiny intertwines with her father’s past until they form a single, unforgettable story.

“Luminous! A beautifully crafted historical melodrama!”

–Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
