Actress/director Nicole Garcia’s adaptation of Milena Agus’ novella features another wholly immersed performance from Marion Cotillard as Gabrielle, a rebellious spirit in post-WWII France. Beginning in the 1950s, Garcia presents an extended flashback to 1940s Provence where Gabrielle’s flagrant disregard for social norms leads her harried parents to give her an ultimatum: choose marriage or the madhouse. The family strikes a deal with Spanish farmer José (Alex Brendemühl) whom they will set up in business if he agrees to take her off their hands.
