The New Girlfriend
Original title: Une Nouvelle Amie
Directed by François Ozon | 2014
With: Romain Duris, Anais Demoustier, Raphael Personnaz
Run time: 109 min. Rated R.

Claire (Anais Demoustier) and Laura (Isild Le Besco) have been best friends since childhood. When Laura falls ill and dies, Claire reaches out to comfort her friend’s bereaved husband, David (Romain Duris), and makes a surprising discovery about him: David secretly enjoys dressing as a woman.  Ozon relates the story of Claire and David by bringing dashes of Douglas Sirk and George Cukor to a twenty-first-century narrative that elevates his exploration of femininity to a new level, blending his trademark sense of mischief with Hitchcockian suspense.

US Distributor: Cohen Media Group
