** PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE CANBERRA IN CELEBRATION OF THE 2020 ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL **
Widowed Yvonne (played by the consummately versatile Adèle Haenel, also seen this season in Portrait of a Lady on Fire) puts her young son to sleep each night with tales of his late father’s bravery. So she is naturally horrified to learn that he was far from the crusading hero that the townspeople of the French Riveria had been led to believe.
In fact, she soon discovers that he was actually a deeply corrupt police chief who took bribes and even put an innocent man, Antoine (Pio Marmaï), in prison. Setting out to right his wrongs, Yvonne decides to do everything she can to return Antoine to his devoted wife (Audrey Tautou) – which is easier said than done.
A critical and box office hit both in France and locally as part of the 2019 Alliance Française French Film Festival, The Trouble with You is an outrageously funny screwball comedy.
