Women on the Edge: A Christophe Honoré Double Feature

MUBI Special

Making Plans for Lena

Christophe Honoré France, 2009

Christophe Honoré continues his exploration of relationships with this portrait of a woman caught between the pressures of her family and her romantic desires for a younger man. Perfect chemistry between Chiara Mastroianni & Louis Garrel enliven this as an entirely engrossing French drama.

The Beautiful Person

Christophe Honoré France, 2008

An adaptation of La Princesse de Clèves, Madame de Lafayette’s famed novel of romance amongst aristocracy, La Belle Personne relocates the action to a modern day high school. Existential doom paired with the entrancing beauty of Louis Garrel & Léa Seydoux animate this beguiling look at young love.
