“I never thought I’d love anyone like this”

From acclaimed director Catherine Corsini (Leaving), La Belle Saison is a luminous and evocative romance set in the turbulent 1970s, powerfully depicting a story of love, duty and courage. Delphine (Izïa Higelin), a twenty-something farm girl of humble means, packs up and moves to Paris, searching for independence and a life beyond the duties of her rural upbringing. It’s not long before she is drawn to dynamic thirty-something Carole (Cécile de France), who is actively involved in the emerging feminist movement. Carole lives with her boyfriend, but the two women quickly fall head over heels. Their bliss is interrupted, however, when a family emergency forces Delphine back to the farm and to her mother (Noémie Lvovsky), and Carole decides to follow her. There, the couple has to face a far different reality.

“Beautifully realised. A luminous, golden-hued period piece.” — Variety
