Cinematheque at Home: Alice

Held over! Plays May 22 - June 12
Directed by Josephine Mackerras
2019, France / Australia, 103 min
French with English subtitles

A beautifully empowering story about a woman’s journey to self discovery. Alice (Emilie Piponnier) is the perfect wife and mother, living happily with her husband Francois and their son in an apartment in Paris. When her credit cards are declined one day while shopping she makes a shocking discovery about her husband and in desperation is forced to find work as a high end prostitute. Emilie Piponnier delivers the performance of the year as a brave woman who reaches a critical turning point in her life.

Reviews

The opening minutes of “Alice” make the case for Emilie Piponnier to be a movie star, and the rest of the movie keeps it up. As the centerpiece of the 2019 SXSW Grand Jury Prize winner, Piponnier dominates every frame, with a mesmerizing screen presence.

One of the year's best films.
