Films on the Green 2015 presents "Queen to Play" by Caroline Bottaro in Riverside Park Pier I.

Intelligent, heartfelt and deeply satisfying! You may go into Queen to Play looking forward to seeing Kevin Kline acting in French, but when you come out you will have Sandrine Bonnaire on your mind.... [...] An actress of exceptional presence with a magical smile and the ability to look both beautiful and ordinary, Bonnaire runs through a wide range of emotions and makes us believe them all.” - Los Angeles Times

Joueuse
By Caroline Bottaro
with Sandrine Bonnaire, Kevin Kline
2009 | Drama | UR | 1h37 | France

The lovely, repressed and quietly intelligent chambermaid Hélène comes upon a couple engaging in an intense chess match, and discovers she has a knack for the game. This obsession–much to the chagrin of her family– leads her to seek the clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor–a liaison that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives.
Based on Bertina Henrichs' acclaimed novel La Joueuse d'échec (The Chess Player).
 

Presented in partnership with the Collectivité Territoriale de Corse, Institut Français and Corsica Pôle Tournages

Preceded by Tutt'in casa cumuna ! by director Michè D'Onofrio (2012, 17min)


Both films with English subtitles
FREE and open to the public
Music by WHCS Radio DJs prior to the screening!
