See this warm and witty French comedy on us. A hugely entertaining blend of humour, truthfulness, and sensitivity, Blandine Lenoir’s warm-heated romantic comedy Aurore centres on a middle aged woman in the midst of major personal and professional life changes.
50 year old Aurore Tabort (the truly marvellous Agnes Joaui), separated from her husband and newly unemployed, discovers she is to become a grandmother. She feels as if her own life has come to a standstill, and is slowly being pushed away to the fringes of society. But after bumping into the great love of her youth, Totoche (Thibault de Montalembert) something changes… Aurore wonders if it might still be possible to embark on something new.
On screen from start to finish, actress and co-writer Joaui (The Taste of Others, Look at Me) is the heart and soul of this witty, feel-great film. She brings a touching, true-to-life poignancy to an endearing portrait of the endurance of womanhood, as an everyday heroine on the road to (re)discovery.
