BIENVENUE PARMI NOUS (Welcome Aboard) 2012
Directed & co-scripted by Jean Becker based on Eric Holder's novel. 90 minutes.
From the director who gave us MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUERITE comes this beguiling, warm-hearted and wryly amusing movie with strongly drawn characters, believable dialogue, superb performances and an artful blend of emotion and comedy.
At the height of his fame, Taillandier a well-known painter in his sixties, suddenly stops painting and loses his zest for life. Despite his success he finds himself overwhelmed with depression and leaves town with no plans and without a word to those close to him. During his travels he unexpectedly encounters Marylou, a young girl kicked out by her mother and also seeking out her path in life.
As the pair travels together the bond between them grows closer, akin to a father-daughter relationship, as they give each other the helping hand they both need to make sense of their lives once more. Rated R.
Admission: $3.00 for members & Students under 25, $5.00 for general public
