“Demonstrates Ms. Letourneur’s modest yet ferocious talent... wry humor and unrelenting energy." — Miriam Bale, The New York Times

Swift, breezy, and often very funny, MACARONI AND CHEESE gives us a fictionalized glimpse behind the scenes at a real film festival. You may have thought that those festivals were about films, but director/star Letourneur, who evidently knows whereof she speaks, demonstrates that they are really about going to the right parties, getting wasted, and getting laid. Sophie (Letourneur) and her two BFFs descend upon the Locarno Film Festival, where Sophie has a film in competition--and a determination to track down Louis Garrel, who, she is convinced, would be the love of her life, if only she could meet him. Like Lena Dunham, to whom she is frequently compared, Letourneur is a connoisseur of shameless behavior and the highs and humiliations it brings. In French, Italian, and English with English subtitles. DCP digital. (MR)

Director/star Sophie Letourneur will be present for audience discussion at both screenings. The discussion on Friday is a Movie Club event.
