Digital presentation - Émilie Dequenne (Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Winner for Rosetta) is mesmerizing as Jeanne, an aimless girl who spends her time rollerblading, riding the train and (occasionally) looking for work. She lives in the suburbs with her mother (Catherine Deneuve), who hopes to get her daughter a job with her old friend Bleistein (Michel Blanc), now a famous lawyer and Jewish activist. Jeanne is more interested in her handsome new boyfriend Franck (Nicolas Duvauchelle), who soon gets into big trouble. Determined to play the part of an innocent victim and blind to the implications, Jeanne invents a lie that she was attacked on the train by black and Arab youths who mistook her for a Jew. Inspired by one of the most media-blitzed and polarizing events in recent French history. Directed and co-written by André Téchiné (The Witnesses, Wild Reeds).
