MétamorphosesWhen Europa meets a magnetic young man named Jupiter, she embarks on an unexpected and magical journey. They arrive in a mythical land inhabited by powerful gods. Europa grasps a greater sense of life and love in this revelatory modern-day retelling of Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

My RevolutionWith the Arab Spring blossoming in the heart of Paris, people take to the streets to show their support. Everyone except 14-year old Marwann, that is. When Marwann stumbles into a street rally one night and has his picture taken by a journalist, he accidentally becomes the face of the Arab Spring. Marwann embraces his newfound identity, only to find himself on a journey of self-discovery, first love, and maybe even an actual connection with his roots.

Special Treatment: Isabelle Huppert stars as a high-class prostitute named Alice who serves up sexual fantasies for her clientele, from schoolgirl innocence to S&M. Fed up with the seamy underbelly of French masculinity, Alice crosses paths with Xavier, a neurotic psychoanalyst facing a marriage crisis. The two quickly realize their professions share a thing or two in common as they navigate the overlapping worlds of psychotherapy and sex therapy.

Down By LoveBased on a stunning true story, life is turned upside down for newly incarcerated Anna (Adéle Exarchopoulos) when she meets Jean (Guillame Gallienne), the warden of her detention center. As the pair quickly become immersed in a whirlwind romance, their high stakes relationship leads to grave consequences.
