Spread your Wings
Classic father-and-son tensions get a thrilling, new lease of life thanks to the family adventure Spread Your Wings from director Nicolas Vanier (AF FFF18, The School of Life; AF FFF14, Belle and Sebastian).
Inspired by a true story, Spread Your Wings follows videogame-addicted teenager Thomas (Louis Vazquez) who is sent by his mother, Paola (Mélanie Doutey, AF FFF15, The Connection), to spend the school holidays with his father in the beautiful, yet secluded, wetlands of the Camargue region in Southern France. With no Wi-Fi and only his ornithologist father, Christian (JeanPaul Rouve, AF FFF19, Kiss & Tell; AF FFF18, C’est la vie!), for company, Thomas is slowly drawn into his father’s passion for a gaggle of newborn, wild geese. Together, father and son train the birds for their first migratory flight, hoping to free them from captivity. By doing so, they also start to rebuild their own strained relationship.
Revolving around this familial dynamic, Spread Your Wings gently echoes the broader international rise of young activists debating the future of a planet they are about to inherit. It is a beautiful film; a timely family adventure about how even the smallest gestures can have a huge impact.

Together with Orel, a delivery boy who ferries her around the sweeping photo-realistic and jewel-toned landscape as only expert animator Michel Ocelot could conceive, Dilili will stop at nothing until justice is restored. Our super sleuths journey through a turn-of-the-century world so evocative, you just might spot Picasso, Proust, or Marie Curie.

A taut thriller built around the leap of faith it takes to invite a stranger into your home to care for your children, The Perfect Nanny is every parent’s nightmare. Adapted for the screen from Leïla Slimani’s Goncourt Prizewinning blockbuster 2016 novel of the same name, director Lucie Borleteau leads an electrifying narrative around family, motherhood and trust.

Almost instantly becoming a member of the family, Louise (Karin Viard) seems too good to be true. As events unravel, that might just be the case.

Under Borleteau’s masterful direction and with a tight-knit cast as the family in crisis, it all comes together in a tense thriller like no other.
