Things to Come: Dir. Mia Hansen-Løve
The wonderful Isabelle Huppert stars in this oh-so-French drama about a middle aged philosophy teacher (Huppert) experiencing an existential crisis when her happy structured life falls apart. Abandoned by her husband, at last rid of her eccentric and demanding mother, dumped by her publisher and distanced from her grown-up children, Nathalie (Huppert) finds her newfound freedom simultaneously liberating and disconcerting. Things to Come is an intelligent, poetic and naturalistic exploration of one woman’s pursuit of contentment in the face of adversity. ($25.95, Region 2)

Suspected by the police and hunted by ruthless hit men, Alice refuses to give up. She can feel it, she knows her daughter is alive out there somewhere, waiting for her.
