SORRY ANGEL

Sunday, June 23  |  3:00pm

Well cast and beautifully filmed, this deeply personal French gay romance explores a young man's sexual awakening with wit, empathy, and a satisfying depth.

 

Paris, 1993. Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a semi-renowned writer and single father in his thirties trying to maintain his sense of romance and humor in spite of the turmoil in his life and the world. While on a work trip to Brittany, he meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), an aspiring filmmaker in his early twenties, who is experiencing a sexual awakening and eager to get out of his parochial life. Arthur becomes instantly smitten with the older man.

 

From writer-director Christophe Honoré (Love Songs, Dans Paris) comes a mature and deeply emotional reflection on love and loss, and youth and aging. In its inter-generational snapshot of cruising, courtship, and casual sex – Jacques’ forty-something neighbor Mathieu (Denis Podalydès) rounds out the triumvirate – SORRY ANGEL balances hope for the future with agony over the past in an unforgettable drama about finding the courage to love in the moment.
