Indie Trailer Sunday: Father of My Children Official US Trailer

As I embark on my trip to Cannes this year, I've been thinking back to last year's fest, and one of my favorite films I saw there was The Father of My Children, directed by Mia Hansen-Løve. I've got to say, this is one of the best films I've seen in the last few years. It's a wonderful drama about a movie producer in Paris and his struggles to balance the stress of his work and family. If you see this, and I hope a lot of you do, you will be absolutely stunned by the film. It's incredibly powerful and heartwarming in ways I can't even begin to explain. I really can't suggest it enough, even if you're not a fan of French films. Watch the trailer below!

The Father of My Children, aka Le Père de Mes Enfants in French, was both written and directed by French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve, of All Is Forgiven (or Tout Est Pardonné) and the short Après Mûre Réflexion previously. She got her debut as an actor in Olivier Assayas's Fin Août, Début Septembre in '98 and is now engaged to Assayas (and directing her own films). This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year and is being distributed by IFC Films in the US. Father of My Children arrives in limited theaters starting on May 28th this summer. If you love great cinema as much as I do, then make it your mission to see this!

This films looks great, I really like the family side of it and can relate to it as I'm sure most folk struggling to pay their bills can. I don't always get into 'films about making films' though as they seem a bit self-referential, after all there are hundreds of other professions that are facing the same problems.
