Free Foreign Film ~ My King (Mon Roi)
The library's free foreign film series presents an award-winning French romance, including Best Actress for Emmanuelle Bercot at the Cannes Film Festival, screening at the Chief Theater.
"Perhaps what's really different about this film, unlike the innumerable others where someone falls in love with someone else who turns out to be bad news, is that it's from a woman's perspective for a change, and she's the relatively sane one bewitched by beauty and charm." – The Hollywood Reporter
Admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident, Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot) becomes dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers while looking back on a turbulent relationship she experienced with megalomaniac Georgio (Vincent Cassel). Who is this man that she loved so deeply, and how did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, the physical work of healing may finally set her free.
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.
