Based on an autobiographical novel by philosopher Éliette Abécassis, A Happy Event stars Louise Bourgoin as Barbara, a student unprepared for pregnancy and parenting. As she struggles to finish her PhD thesis, she starts a passionate relationship with Nicolas (Pio Marmaï) and decides to have a child. The film chronicles her pregnancy and their relationship as the “happy event” brings them closer but also threatens to tear them apart. Bourgoin gives a stunning performance as the hyper-sexual future mother, and Marmai is excellent as the patient, but ever increasingly frustrated, father-to-be.
