Film

The film will be shown during the event. 

This exciting costume drama is based on the novel by Balzac, and is relevant today.

In 1820, Lucien de Rubempré arrives in Paris as a sensitive, and idealistic young poet determined to write a reputation-making novel. Instead, to make ends meet, he finds himself swept into journalism. Under the mentorship of cynical editor Étienne Lousteau, Lucien agrees to write rave theater reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience. Xavier Giannoli crafts a contemporary tale of corruption amidst an early form of "fake news”. This film received 7 César Awards!

Attending this screening will count toward a raffle to win a trip for two to Tahiti or Paris offered by Frenchbee. To qualify you need to attend 4 events of AF Silicon Valley Ciné-Club or Salons.

The bilingual introduction and the discussion will be led by Hélène Laroche Davis, Professor of Film Studies. 

French Food, wine and networking at 6:30pm before viewing the film together. Buffet by Fabrique Délices, Frenchery and AF Silicon Valley.
