Isabelle Huppert in New US Trailer for Hansen-Løve's 'Things to Come'
"You act like everything's the same. What planet are you on?" IFC has unveiled an official US trailer for the film Things to Come, the latest from French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (read my interview with her here). This is also the other great Isabelle Huppert film this year, along with Paul Verhoeven's Elle (which Jeremy raved about at Fantastic Fest). This film has been playing the festival circuit since premiering at the Berlin Film Festival in February, and we already posted the UK trailer for it a few months ago. The full cast includes André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, and Edith Scob. The film follows a woman who experiences a few major shakeups in her life, including a divorce and the birth of a grandchild. It's a very philosophical but enjoyable film (there's a cute cat in it!), as expected from Mia Hansen-Løve. In theaters later this year.
Here's the official US trailer for Mia Hansen-Løve's Things to Come, direct from IFC's YouTube:
Nathalie (Huppert) teaches philosophy at a Parisian high school. She is deeply passionate about her job and enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking to others. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her eccentric mother, leading a life of personal and intellectual fulfilment. Unexpectedly, Nathalie's husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With an newfound freedom suddenly thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent herself and establish a new way of living. Things to Come, originally L'avenir in French, is both written & directed by French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (read my interview with her), of the films All Is Forgiven, Father of My Children, Goodbye First Love, and Eden previously. This premiered at the Berlin Film Festival where it won Best Director. IFC + Sundance Selects opens Things to Come in select US theaters December 2nd. Visit the official website.
