ON SCREEN

No strings. No emotions. No regrets?

 

Inspired by the documentary Escort by Hélène de Crécy, Polish director Malgoska Szumowska’s first French language film was created with Juliette Binoche in mind for the central role of a journalist with ELLE.

 

Anne (Juliette Binoche), a well-off, Paris-based mother of two and investigative journalist for ELLE, is writing an article about student prostitution. Her meetings with two fiercely independent young women, Alicja (Joanna Kulig) and Charlotte (Anaïs Demoustier), are profound and unsettling, moving her to question her most intimate convictions about money, family and sex.

 

Anne’s home life is marred by clashes with her teenage son Florent (François Civil) and a marriage to Patrick (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) that has become strained by misunderstanding. As Anne prepares a meal for patrick’s colleagues she begins to see similarities between her own circumstance and the lives of Alicja and Charlotte.

 

Elles premiered at the 62nd Berlin Film Festival in 2012.
