Leaving (Not Rated)

French with English subtitles

A riveting new drama by the prolific French filmmaker Catherine Corsini, Leaving (Partir) stars Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas as a woman prepared to abandon everything in pursuit of passion. Suzanne (Thomas), the bourgeois wife of a successful doctor, and Samuel (Yvan Attal), live together with their children in the south of France. Weighted down by a thrill-less lifestyle and a stale marriage, Suzanne falls for the handsome young Ivan (Sergi López), an immigrant ex-con working on their property. Their affair is passionate, but Suzanne is wracked by guilt. When she confesses to her husband, his retaliation begins an ugly turn of events. A success with critics and audiences alike at the Toronto and Seattle film festivals, this elegantly told tale of intrigue is not to be missed.
