We are delighted to announce that Laurent Lafitte will attend this screening.
Muriel Bayen (Sandrine Kiberlain), a beautician and divorced mother, leads an orderly daily life and an active fantasy life. For 20 years she has been the number one fan of pop singer Vincent Lacroix (Laurent Lafitte). One night, Vincent’s life is struck by drama, and Muriel is the only one who can help him. This is a turning point in Muriel’s life, dragged into a story she would never even have imagined.
The pairing of Kiberlain and Lafitte is captivating; Muriel is both comic and tragic; Vincent filled with the torments and anxieties of being a pop star. (MPR)
