 Detroit Film Theatre

France/Germany-2009-directed by Mia Hansen-Love (110 min.)
One of the  most convincing life in the movie business ever filmed, this rich new perspective is inspired by the true story of a legendary French film producer who was known not only for the quality of his work, but for his behind-the-scenes ability to juggle the demands of artistic egos, lawyers, bankers, and the needs of his wife and daughters-not to mention his surrogate cinema family. But when his reserves-financial and emotional-reach a dramatic breaking point, his family's dedication and resilience are put to the test. Winner of the Special Jury Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and acclaimed at the Toronto and London Festivals, The Father of My Children is a revelatory new drama from young Mia Hansen-Love, and a moving portrait of family in tumult. In French with English subtitles. "Haunting and amazing" -San Francisco Bay Guardian
