October 18 at 8:30pm | In early 1980s Paris, Élizabeth (Charlotte Gainsbourg) struggles to keep her family connected following a divorce. Uneasy about her own future, the naturally shy single mother of two begins to take steps to rebuild her life, embarking on a new relationship and landing a job at a late-night call-in radio show, where she encounters a cast of drifters and lonely souls, including a down-on-her-luck young woman whom she welcomes into her home Altogether, these choices profoundly impact Elizabeth, shaping her destiny for years to come. Sublimely sympathetic and steeped in an introspective grace, PASSENGERS OF THE NIGHT chronicles the many small moments that, in toto, give rise to a full, nuanced life.
