Director: Louis-Do de Lencquesaing

93 minutes // France // 2012 Critics’ Week, Cannes 2012

Actress Alice de Lencquesaing will be in attendance at this screening and will participate in a Q&A hosted by Margaret Corkery.

This event is organised in partnership with the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland (SDGI).

Actor-turned-director Louis-Do de Lencquesaing’s first feature centres on divorced writer Paul (de Lencquesaing), struggling in his relationships with student daughter Camille (the filmmaker’s own child, Alice), mother Mina (Marthe Keller), and potential partner Ada (Valentina Cervi). However, Ada has complications of her own; she lives with her partner and young daughter. As her relationship with Paul develops, she must make a choice. A leisurely paced family drama in which each character has their own subplot of romantic difficulties, the film is elegantly crafted, with a keen eye for the nuances of the various relationships, and marks an assured debut.

Director’s Note: In a Rush unfolds the story of Paul. Carefully observed and simply told, with class and charm!

Showing as part of the 2012 IFI French Film Festival
