Im Alter von Ellen

Pia Marais Germany, 2010

Kevin Matthews's rating of the film At Ellen's Age

Jeanne Balibar stars as Ellen, a flight attendant who finds herself having a bit of a mid-life crisis that leads to her pursuing a very different patth from the one she is already on. I thought it was a great character study, providing a rare female spin on the kind of film we usually see featuring male characters. Ellen is a flawed character, but she's making many mistakes as she tries to right herself again.
