Official US Trailer for Palme d'Or Winner The Class
Sony Pictures Classics has finally unveiled a US version of the trailer for this year's Palme d'Or winner, The Class aka Entre les Murs. The more I see of this, the more fascinated I am by it. I'm not sure if it's because I'm wrapped up in politics right now with the election, but it looks like this could be not only entertaining but very insightful. The film is an evocation of contemporary society as seen through a year's worth of events in a Paris junior high school. The first trailer we ran didn't have subtitles (although a friend of mine translated it for me) but this time it does - so I highly suggest everyone give it a second shot.

The Class is directed by famed French filmmaker Laurent Cantet, of films like Human Resources, Time Out, and Heading South previously. The script is based off of François Bégaudeau's book of the same name; Bégaudeau assisted in adapting the screenplay in addition to Robin Campillo and Cantet. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the film for distribution after its debut at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. The Class will arrive in limited theaters in the US starting on Christmas Day, December 25th.
