Join us for our first film of 2018 at our regular monthly Soirée Cinéma, where we’ll show the 2001 crime drama: Sur mes lèvres («Read My Lips»).
Directed by Jacques Audiard and featuring Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle Devos, and Olivier Gourmet.
The film will be presented in French with English subtitles, with a discussion following the film. Please bring snacks to share. Reservations are not required, but come early to ensure a seat!
This is a free event for members and their guests, but donations are highly appreciated to support the Ciné-Club and continue building our video library collection.
Carla Bhem (Emmanuelle Devos) has worked as a secretary for a property development company for a long time. Her job includes everything from handling files to dealing with suppliers. First to arrive in the morning, last out at night… And her reward? To be paid like a serf, treated like mud and ordered around like a dog. The name of the solution is Paul Angeli (Vincent Cassel), the new trainee she had hired that is fresh out of jail. She teaches him good manners and he teaches her bad ones.
