Watch: New Trailer for 'Down By Love' Starring Adele Exarchopoulos
"Do you believe in destiny? An official trailer has premiered for Pierre Godeau's Down By Love, a French film starring actress Adele Exarchopoulos made famous by starring in Blue is the Warmest Color (she won the Most Promising Actress Cesar Award in 2014). Exarchopoulos plays a inmate at a prison, and the story profiles her and the prison warden falling in love. It's obviously a trick topic and apparently it's based on a true story, which makes this even more interesting to see turned into a movie. Guillaume Gallienne stars with Stéphanie Cléau. This trailer has English subtitles to help understand the story. Take a look.
Based on a true story, the impossible love between a prison director and one of its female inmates. A man, a woman. A prison director, his inmate. An impossible love, a true story. Down By Love, or Éperdument originally in France, is both written and directed by French filmmaker Pierre Godeau, of the film Juliette previously. Based on the book by Florent Gonçalves & Catherine Siguret. The film already opened in France in March earlier this year, and doesn't have a US release date set yet. It's still seeking US distribution, which may be tough because it deals with a touchy topic that will be hard to market in the US. Anyone interested?
