An accomplished, overwhelmed film producer is at the center of former Cahiers du cinéma critic Mia Hansen-Løve’s moving tale, inspired by the life of the late Humbert Balsan. Juggling a family with the ceaseless demands of artistic egos and mounting debts, he finds the struggle just to stay afloat growing harder every day.
