Father Of My Children (Not Rated)

French with English subtitles

In The Father of My Children, winner of The Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, Paris-based film producer Grégoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) has it all: a wife and three daughters he adores and a stimulating job that he's devoted to. On the surface he seems invincible, maintaining humor and charm as he tirelessly juggles the never-ending demands of his production company with his domestic responsibilities. But when Grégoire's reserves—both financial and emotional—reach a dramatic breaking point, his wife Sylvia (Chiara Caselli) and children are forced to cope with the profound repercussions. Written and directed by Mia Hansen-Løve.
