Grand Expectations

1h 45m Drama 2023

Summer 2019. Madeleine (Rebecca Marder), a brilliant activist from a modest background, is preparing for her oral exam at an elite French school to study and become a politician. Madeleine’s partner

Antoine (Benjamin Lavernhe), from a wealthy background, is also an aspiring politician. On holidays at Antoine’s family home in Corsica, the couple are involved in a road incident with fatal consequences. Keeping this secret binds them closer together but is a heavy burden. Reminiscent of a Chabrol-style psychological thriller, Sylvain Desclous’s skillfully written drama brings a sharp sense of reality to the continuing class struggle in French society.
