After premiering to considerable acclaim at Cannes’ Director’s Fortnight back in May, Arnaud Desplechin’s romance “My Golden Days” is finally gearing up for U.S. release this March, courtesy of Magnolia Pictures. The latest film from the director of “A Christmas Tale” and “Kings & Queen” features his longtime collaborator Matheiu Amalric opposite striking newcomers Quentin Domaire and Lou Roy-Lecollinet.
“My Golden Days” is the story of Paul, an anthropologist preparing to leave Tajikistan. Reflecting on his life, he has a series of flashbacks ranging from his childhood in Roubaix to his mother’s attacks of madness and his father’s alienating depression. Through all of his reawakening memories, Paul is consistently reminded of Esther, the beautiful, rude, haughty soul and love of his life.
The poster, seemingly displaying a young Paul and Esther, teases the nostalgic romance at the film’s heart. “My Golden Days” will be released in theaters by Magnolia on March 18.
