In the Name of My Daughter

Friday, May 15 - Thursday, June 4, 2015

Téchiné’s (Unforgivable) penetrating drama recounts a real-life mother’s decades-long fight for justice. In 1976 Nice, casino operator Renée Le Roux (a regal Catherine Deneuve) is at odds with her daughter Agnès (rising star Adèle Haenel). As they bicker over money, Agnès falls for her mother’s shady lawyer (Tell No One’s Guillaume Canet)—and gets talked into betraying her mother. But when the young woman vanishes and her lover suspiciously flees the country, Renée vows to avenge her. Official selection: Venice, Toronto, Tribeca Film Festivals
