Astounded at the extraordinary talent of a juvenile delinquent and piano prodigy Mathieu Malinski, the director of the National Conservatory of Music in Paris, Pierre Geithner, strikes a deal for the young pianist to avoid prison by performing community service. With the help of La Comtessa (a master piano teacher, played with aplomb by Kristin Scott Thomas), Pierre tries to prepare Mathieu to represent the school in a major music competition. Featuring spectacular piano performances and sublime acting, this inspiring film illuminates the powerful connection between emotional expression and the transformative power of music. Cast: Lambert Wilson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jules Benchetrit, Karidja Touré (France, 2018, 105 min., Drama/Music)
