          Few films have afforded the incomparable Juliette Binoche the opportunity to showcase her remarkable range as the gripping new thriller about female desire and identity, WHO YOU THINK I AM. Binoche plays Claire, a university lecturer and mother of two teenage boys, who is contend...ing with the approach of middle age and remains stung by the betrayal of her ex-husband (Charles Berling), who is building a new life with another partner. Claire has a new lover too, the handsome Ludo, but is under no illusions as to his fidelity. Out of a mix of petulance and curiosity, she impulsively creates a fake Facebook profile in which to keep an eye on him: she's Clara', vivacious, blonde... and 24 years old. Ludo doesn't take the bait, but his close friend Alex (Franois Civil) does, and their online connection soon becomes flirtatious. Titillated by the opportunity to be 'young again', Claire's deceptions lead both of her identities into increasingly dangerous territory...Based on a novel by Camille Laurens, this remarkable portrait part psychological drama, part thriller explores contemporary issues in an intelligent and compelling manner, and will likely spark fierce post-screening conversations.

          Writer/director Julien Rappeneaus follow-up to his 2016 debut hit Rosalie Blum, OF LOVE AND LIES is an uplifting story about the power of a childs love, and the lengths that one boy will go to to help get his fathers life back on track. Irrepressible 12-year old Tho (star-in-the-...making Maleaume Paquin) is nicknamed Fourmi Ant due to his diminutive stature. He wants nothing more than to offer hope to his disillusioned father, Laurent (the wonderful Franois Damiens), a loving but lonely man struggling to deal with both retrenchment and separation from Thos mother Chlo (Ludivine Sagnier). An opportunity comes when Tho is invited to try out for the youth training programme of English football club Arsenal. Despite showing obvious talent, hes rejected for being too small, but doesnt have the heart to impose yet another disappointment on his father. So Tho impulsively articulates a well-meaning fiction one that quickly spirals and overtakes not just his life, but all those around him. As with Rosalie Blum, Rappeneau demonstrates skill at bringing empathy, humour and charm to the lives of ordinary people with this rousing and heartfelt story. Its timeless message of determination and community will speak to viewers of any age or size.
