Description

Tickets to Rochester screenings will be sold at the door.

Paula, played by the marvelous Laetitia Dosch, is 31, broke and utterly clueless when it comes to her life’s direction. Her ex, a now famous photographer whose success—although he won’t admit it—may be due to snapping her portrait, will not let Paula live with him, feeling as though he doesn’t owe her a thing. Frenzied but hopeful, Paula drifts from place to place with her cat in tow, eventually finding work as the nanny of 6-year-old Lila in the neighborhood of the film’s title.

A free-spirited portrayal of the murky waters of adulthood, Léonor Serraille’s feature film debut follows our seemingly clueless protagonist as it slowly becomes clear, to both the audience and the woman herself, that she may have a clue after all. Montparnasse Bienvenue is both charming and thoughtful, and Paula is the kind of heroine you can’t help but root for as she fumbles her way towards happiness.
