About the Film:

Directed by Nicole Garcia. 2017. France. 116 min. French with English subtitles.

Based on the international best-selling novel and starring Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, From the Land of the Moon is the story of a free-spirited woman fighting for passionate dreams of true love against all odds. Cotillard plays Gabrielle, who comes from a small village in the South of France. It is the 1950s, and dreams of true love are considered scandalous, and even a sign of insanity. Her parents marry her off to José (Àlex Brendemühl), an honest and loving Spanish farm worker who they think will make a respectable woman of her. Despite José’s devotion to her, Gabrielle vows that she will never love him and lives like a prisoner bound by the constraints of conventional post–World War II society. That is, until she is diagnosed with kidney stones and sent to a hospital in the Alps to recuperate. There she meets André Sauvage (Louis Garrel), a dashing injured veteran of the Indochinese War, who rekindles the passion buried inside her. She promises they will run away together, and André seems to share her desire. Will anyone dare rob her of her right to follow her dreams?
