June 26 - June 30, 2024

Catherine Breillat’s new film, Last Summer, (Sideshow and Janus Films) opens in theaters on June 28, with sneak screenings starting June 26.

With her first film in a decade, the fearless 75-year-old French auteur Catherine Breillat (Fat Girl, The Last Mistress) proves she’s as provocative as ever with her Cannes-stirring film, which drives down the dark road of uncontrollable passion. A remarkably nuanced, radiant Léa Drucker plays Anne, an attorney who has plateaued in her marriage to Pierre (Olivier Rabourdin), a distracted businessman. His son, troubled seventeen-year-old, Theo (Samuel Kircher), from a previous marriage, has recently returned to Pierre’s ineffectual and despondent care. When Pierre leaves town for a business trip, Anne and Théo — confined under the same roof for the first time — find themselves in the throes of an unexpected and dangerously lustful affair, threatening the stability of the household. Music by Kim Gordon heightens the erotic tension of Last Summer, a film that boldly surveys power dynamics, female desire, and fulfillment.

To mark the film’s release, Q&A sessions with director Catherine Breillat will be held at the Film at Lincoln Center and Angelika Film Center in New York :
