In her directorial debut, actress Davis, playing the lead role of Angèle, takes a stance both satirical and sympathetic toward her problematic protagonist. Red of hair as well as political convictions, Angèle was born too late. An aspiring urban planner, she lives in a perpetual state of indignation that she finds sadly lacking in those around her. Her onetime radical father is too old, her sister too bourgeois, her boyfriend too casual. She starts a political discussion group but becomes discouraged by their lack of conviction. Her mother once marched alongside her father in the front lines of political protest but then gave up, left her family, and moved to the countryside. Angèle hasn't seen her mother in years, but now she seeks her out, hoping to find answers. In French with English subtitles. DCP digital.
