MY KING (MON ROI)

Directed by Maïwenn
US release date: August 12

Emmanuelle Bercot earned a Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her affecting turn in MON ROI as Tony, a young woman sidelined by a skiing accident who falls in love with the charming, but tempestuous georgio (Vincent Cassel, also superb). In sharp contrast to typical romance movies, MON ROI has a raw honesty that draws viewers to these characters, even as clouds gather on the horizon.

"Maïwenn remains underappreciated by the critical community, but that will change after the world experiences MON ROI, a movie that may sound anti-romantic, but is just the opposite: boldly ultra-romantic, of the sort that has turned French pics (like JULES AND JIM or A MAN AND A WOMAN) into worldwide hits before." - Peter Debruge, Variety
