Synopsis
Turning his lens from Saint Joan of Arc to TV goddess, Dumont remains faithful to the pompous absurdity of self-importance – this time, boosted by the journalist-as-star phenomenon. Playing a news anchor, Léa Seydoux’s high-profile world is called into question after a traffic accident, prompting her to reflect on her fame, family, and career. A crisis-of-faith drama or an intentional satire, Dumont’s brand of “realism” is a compelling portrait of the melodramatic media, and the “France” behind the glamour.
