Sophie Letourneur’s sexy, playful romp “Les coquillettes” is getting a one week release next week at the MoMA in New York, from July 17-23. MoMA is teaming up with Tangerine Entertainment, the production company for female directors started by industry veterans Amy Hobby and Anne Hubbell.
The film, which screened at MoMA and Film Society of Lincoln Center’s New Directors/New Films festival, is getting compared to the work of “Girls” creator Lena Dunham, and the trailer shows off the casual dialogue and outlandish actions that fill up Letourner’s film. The film’s lead, Sophie, has a film at Locarno, but all she and her friends can focus on is having fun and pursuing men.
Here’s the world premiere of the film’s English-subtitled trailer:
