One Nation, One King

Paris, 1789. The Bastille has been stormed and a breath of liberty blows through the streets of Paris. Françoise (Adèle Haenel), a young washerwoman, and Basile (Gaspard Ulliel), a drifter without a family or name, discover the unique exhilaration of love and revolution. Together with their friends and the people of the working-class districts of Paris, they begin to realize dreams of emancipation in a newly formed assembly where they witness, with both hopes and doubts, the creation of a new political system. Within their debates and the fury on the streets, lies the fate of their once sacred king and the birth of a republic.

Don't miss this historical drama from writer-director Pierre Schoeller screening ONE DAY ONLY on Bastille Day, July 14, 2019 at Laemmle Theatres.

One Nation, One King will also be coming to DVD and VoD on Sunday, July 7!

A sturdy, intelligent, […] stirring historical drama. With its questions about national identity and emphasis on the women of the revolution, it feels like a timely film that may well chime with audiences.” — Screen International
