Special Presentation

Aspiring actress Madeleine (Nadia Tereszkiewicz, CALL MY AGENT!, FOREVER YOUNG) and would-be lawyer Pauline (Rebecca Marder, A RADIANT GIRL) are struggling to make ends meet in 1930s Paris when an audition-gone-wrong makes Madeleine the prime suspect in the murder of a famous producer. Seizing the opportunity to step into the spotlight, Madeleine decides to plead guilty, exposing her "victim" as a casting couch predator and — with the help of Pauline — bringing the jury and public to her side with a flawless performance in court. Fame and fortune ensue, but when faded stage and silent film star Madame Odette Chaumette (Isabelle Huppert, channeling Sarah Bernhardt) turns up looking to get in on the notoriety to reboot her own career, Madeleine risks being exposed as completely innocent. Adapting the same play that inspired classic screwball comedy TRUE CONFESSION (1937), French director François Ozon (8 WOMEN, POTICHE, SUMMER OF 85) crafts a classy, star-studded caper comedy that fuses courtroom drama, fizzy banter, elements of the backstage musical and a smart nod to #MeToo-era satire. The excellent supporting cast includes Fabrice Luchini, André Dussollier, Dany Boon and Félix Lefebvre. DIR/SCR François Ozon, from the play "Mon Crime" by Georges Berr and Louis Verneuil; PROD Éric Altmayer, Nicolas Altmayer. France, 2023, color 102 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
