|Synopsis:||A woman separated from family for many years attempts to reintegrate|
Juliette [Kristin Scott Thomas] comes to stay with her sister Léa [Elsa Zylberstein] and family. The rejoining is warm but clouded and we do not know why. We watch as Juliette attempts to find her way in what seems a new world, and as she does we learn what brought them all to this place.
We absolutely love this movie. The people are real, the story is dramatic and moving, the acting is excellent. Léa's open acceptance of her sister in spite of her husband's initial reluctance is touching. Her childen are - amazingly - children and not mini-adults as they are in so many movies. The supporting cast is wonderful and the movie is one of our most favorite of all times.
Kristen Scott Thomas is unbelievably excellent as the main character and we will forever believe this character is real.
