Berlin Silver Bear winning director Mia Hansen-Løve’s fifth feature Things to Come is a tender, contemplative portrait of womanhood - and an irresistible collaboration between the filmmaker and the legendary actor Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, White Material, Amour). Nathalie (Huppert) teaches philosophy at a Parisian high school. She is deeply passionate about her job and enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking to others. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her eccentric mother, leading a life of personal and intellectual fulfilment. Unexpectedly, Nathalie's husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With an newfound freedom suddenly thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent herself and establish a new way of living. Featuring a remarkable performance from Huppert, Things to Come is an intelligent, poetic and naturalistic exploration of one woman’s pursuit of happiness. Having gathered critical acclaim across the festival circuit, it certifies Hansen-Løve (Goodbye First Love, Eden) as one of the most distinguished emerging auteurs in European cinema.
