Father of My Children
A family is forced to learn a painful lesson about the man of the house in this drama from director Mia Hansen-Love. Gregoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) is an independent film producer who runs a well-respect production company, Moon Films. For Gregoire, to work is to live, and while he loves his wife Sylvia (Chiara Caselli) and their three daughters Clemence (Alice de Lencquesaing), Valentine (Alice Gautier) and Billie (Manelle Driss), during the week he's practically a stranger to them. Gregoire makes a point of spending each weekend with his family at their cottage in the country, but even then separating him from his cell phone is all but impossible, and Sylvia and the girls are reaching the end of their patience with Gregoire and his obsession with work. Though there's no question that Gregoire is devoted to Moon Films, he's kept a secret from Sylvia and his daughters about the state of the company, and it's not until a sudden, desperate act forces Sylvia into leadership of the company that they come to understand the real reasons behind his unrelenting schedule.
