Down By Love

Adéle Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color) sizzles in this story of a young inmate who falls for her married prison director (Guillaume Gallienne, Yves Saint Laurent). The film is based on true events that occurred in a Versailles prison in 2011, causing a national scandal.

The Last Face

A love story set against the backdrop of war-torn Africa. Miguel, a heroic Spanish doctor, puts himself in harm’s way to deliver medical treatment to the victims of military uprisings. Wren is the spokesperson for an organization that funds medical assistance for impoverished nations the world over. They meet in Liberia, where Wren is immediately impressed with Miguel’s selflessness, medical skill, and strapping physique. He works hard and has charm and charisma that cut through any language barrier. Wren is drawn to him, and they begin a torrid affair.

I Used to Be Darker

When Taryn, a Northern Irish runaway, finds herself in trouble in Ocean City, MD, she seeks refuge with her aunt and uncle in Baltimore. But Kim and Bill have problems of their own: they’re trying to handle the end of their marriage gracefully for the sake of their daughter Abby, just home from her first year of college. A story of family revelations, people finding each other and letting each other go, looking for love where they’ve found it before and, when that doesn’t work, figuring out where they might find it next.

The Anarchists

Paris 1899. Corporal Jean Albertini, an orphan of humble origins, is chosen to infiltrate a band of anarchists. For him, it’s a chance to move up the ranks. But forced to compromise without respite, Jean is increasingly divided. On one hand, he delivers incriminating intelligence reports to his superior, Gaspar. On the other, he feels himself developing genuine feelings for the anarchists. [Synopsis courtesy of Cannes Film Festival]
