A woman faces emotional difficulties by embracing the idea of a better future.
Filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve‘s THINGS TO COME (L’Avenir) (2016) is a delicate drama that tells the story of a woman who, after living comfortably for years, must suddenly reinvent her life. The film depicts not only one woman’s search for new adventures but also gets to the heart of what constitutes a successful life. Things to come (2016) premiered at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, where Hansen-Løve was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director. The film also screened at the 2016 Telluride and Toronto festivals and will screen at the 2016 New York Film Festival. Sundance Selects will release the movie in New York and Los Angeles this fall with a national rollout to follow.
Nathalie teaches philosophy at a high school in Paris. She is passionate about her job and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her very possessive mother. One day, Nathalie’s husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With freedom thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent her life.
