A philosophy teacher learns to live with unexpected freedoms in Mia Hansen-Løve’s (Eden, Goodbye First Love) delicately observed study of a crisis in late middle age that features a superbly three-dimensional performance from Isabelle Huppert as Nathalie, a poised, confident intellectual whose sense of self is challenged by events beyond her control: Her husband of twenty-five years announces he is leaving her for a younger woman; her classically designed philosophy text books are given a crass makeover by her publisher; and her domineering mother (the great Edith Scob), a potent force in her life, has not long to live. Liberated from the responsibilities of being a wife and daughter, Nathalie must learn to practice the philosophies she has for so long taught to others.(Notes by David O’Mahony.)
