Last Summer

Dir. Catherine Breillat
104 min

Anne is a successful lawyer, happily married to Pierre, and living an idyllic life with their two twin daughters. But when Théo, Pierre’s delinquent 17-year-old son from another marriage, comes to live with them, Anne is unwittingly entranced.

When Anne decides to begin a passionate affair with Théo, she is confronted by what she believes is love and the grim reality of manipulation and cruelty. Léa Drucker and Samuel Kircher are brilliant as Anne and Théo, playing their sad game of cat-and-mouse, and have left audiences at film festivals amazed and disturbed. This remake of the 2019 Danish film Queen of Hearts is perfect fodder for provocateur Catherine Breillat.
