See the latest and greatest French comedies shown for the first time in the US just weeks after their release in France, at the Lumiere Cinema on the first weekend of December!
The program includes four new French comedies presented at the Lumiere Cinema in Beverly Hills. All movies will be screened in French with English subtitles.
December 2, 3pm | The Midwife (Sage-Homme)
While his modest family had great hopes for him, Leopold, a 19-year- old medicine student, fails at his final exam. He decides to hide the truth from them and accepts to enter the midwifery school, planning on joining back medical school later through a bridge. Raised exclusively among men, Leopold starts this course half-hearted. His tutor Nathalie, a strong-willed and experienced midwife, will soon make him change his view on this astonishing world and question his certainties.
The screening will be followed by a panel with midwives from Los Angeles.
