In this big-budget tribute to the American musical, real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Fran├žoise Dorleac (just before her tragic death) play twins who dream of romance and life in the big-city, away from their quiet seaside town. Jacques Demy's delightful follow-up to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg boasts a stellar supporting cast including legendary French actress Danielle Darrieux as the girls' mother, a sublime Gene Kelly as an American songwriter, and a cameo by Agnes Varda as a music-loving nun. The CinemaScope canvas is packed with energetically choreographed dance numbers and eye-popping color while celebrated composer Michel Legrand contributes a brilliant, Oscar-nominated score. The Young Girls of Rochefort lovingly reworks the classic Hollywood "let's put on a show" template into an essay on the emotional rollercoaster ride that is movie-going. Savor this fully restored pastel-hued masterpiece now in its 50th anniversary celebration.
