WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In the first days of Nazi-occupied France, the beautiful Lucile (Williams) awaits news of her POW husband while living under the strict shadow of her controlling mother-in-law Madame Angellier(Scott Thomas). As German soldiers soon flood into their village, the women are forced to shelter the handsome and refined German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) – but after initially ignoring him, Lucile finds herself drawn more towards him as he is to her…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Suite Française is more than just a pretty war-time romance – it is adapted from an incomplete series of stories by Irène Némirovsky, a Jewish writer who was arrested and placed in Auschwitz where she sadly died, which makes her stories even more significant when presented on the big screen.
