What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert, in a radiant performance) is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family. But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of 25 years is leaving her, the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself. Best Director winner at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, Mia Hansen-Løve's (Eden) latest is an uncommonly intelligent, soul-searching look at what it means to create a life of one’s own.
