SCREENING

Domestic Life (La vie domestique)

Ongoing

Presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy 

France. Dir. Isabelle Czajka. 2013, 97 mins. Digital projection. US premiere. With Emmanuelle Devos, Julie Ferrier. This subtle, sophisticated satire trains an alternately sympathetic and sarcastic eye on a group of women leading lives of quiet desperation in the Parisian suburbs. At its center is Juliette (Emmanuelle Devos, Kings & Queen), a housewife with a boorish husband who’s struggling to balance banal domestic responsibilities with career ambitions. Meanwhile, real tragedy hovers in the margins, throwing this tale of petty bourgeois problems into sharp relief. Based on the best-selling novel Arlington Park by Rachel Cusk, La vie domestique offers a sly, trenchant commentary on modern motherhood.
