And for my own personal pleasure Adèle Haenel is indeed once again coming to the Festival. This time, for the critics' week, as a special screening and the Opening Night film Suzanne, by Katell Quillévéré.
Part of this week are also the special screenings of 'Les Recontres d'après minuit', by young french director Yann Gonzalez and the american film 'Ain't Them Bodies Saints', by director David Lowery. For more information visit the official site Semaine de la Critique.

Here's the story of 'Suzanne':
Suzanne and Maria are sisters who are extremely, indeed intensely close. They have a happy childhood despite the absence of their mother, who passed away when they were still little girls. Nicolas, their at times clumsy but loving father runs the household the very best he can, until the day that Suzanne gets pregnant...
Suzanne is played by Sara Forestier but I honestly can't say yet if Adèle Haenel is playing her sister, which is very likely to be the case. Update: Indeed, Adèle Haenel will play Maria.
Storyline from here.
