From immensely talented French director Mia Hansen-Løve (Eden), Things to Come is a thoughtfully depicted examination of questions of happiness, and the value or folly of established ways of living. Nathalie (the always compelling Isabelle Huppert) teaches philosophy in Paris. She’s passionate about her work, enjoying being able to pass on the pleasure of thinking to the next generation. Married with two grown-up children, she devotes her spare time to the books she publishes on the side, to former students, and above all to her very possessive mother (the great Edith Scob). But one day Nathalie’s husband Heinz (André Marcon) announces he is leaving her for another woman, the first of a series of events that will upend Nathalie’s world, and leave her to completely reassess her future.
