61st LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (4th-15th October 2017) DAY 4
Every day (from October 4th to October 15th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.
'Jeune Femme' also screens on October 8th at Curzon Mayfair and October 15th at Curzon Soho. Details here.
London Film Festival preview:
When a key doesn’t get Paula into her ex-lover’s apartment, her attempts at head-butting the door open also prove unsuccessful. A bleeding head wound opens this kinetic, urgent portrait of a heartbroken young woman who is her own worst enemy. Hauling the ex’s cat across Paris in a cardboard box, Paula’s days as a photographer’s muse are over. But she does possess a scrappy charisma and this magnetism is her ticket to clawing her way back to stability. Jeune Femme takes its cues from Laetitia Dosch’s impossible-to-take-your-eyes-off-her performance as Paula, hurtling through scenes to a post-punk electro score. Debut director Léonor Serraille impresses with sheer vivacity – this is filmmaking from someone who is alive to both the possibilities of cinema and to human experience in 2017. And it’s a film that is funny, moving and hugely invigorating.
Here (and above) is the trailer.
