Free Foreign Film ~ MOKA
Doors 6:30 pm
The library's free foreign film series presents French director Frédéric Mermoud's award-winning drama, screening at the Chief Theater.
To find the driver of the vintage mocha-colored Mercedes which she thinks hit her son and devastated her life, Diane Kramer embarks on a trip to take revenge. She goes to Évian, where she has learned the driver of the Mercedes lives, but she now has to face another woman, Marlene--a beauty salon proprietor and owner of the car. In order to get closer to her, Diane pretends to be a potential buyer for the car, but the path of revenge is more tortuous and complicated than it seems.
Adapted from Tatiana de Rosnay’s 2006 novel, Moka is a moody, riveting psychological thriller, showcasing the tremendous talents of two of France’s best actresses.
A French film screening bonus! Steamboat's French Club will gather before the film at 6 p.m. in the Chief Theater's Black Box Lounge for conversational French, wine specials and potluck appetizers. All French speakers welcome.
