Adieu les Cons /Bye Bye Morons (2020)
By Albert Dupontel, with Virginie Efira, Albert Dupontel and Nicolas Marié

In French with English subtitles

This gem of modern cinema is a mix of humor, poetry and a rebel spirit. A statement of human nature in a society lost in technology.

When 43-year-old Suze finds out that she's ill, she decides to go looking for a child she was forced to abandon when she was 15. On her madcap bureaucratic quest she crosses paths with JB, a 50-year-old suicidal computer programmer and Mr. Blin, a blind archivist prone to overenthusiasm. The unlikely trio set off on a hilarious and poignant journey across the city in search of Suze's long-lost child.

The film received 7 Cesar Awards: Best film, Best original screenplay, Best Director…

The bilingual introduction and the discussion will be led by Hélène Laroche Davis, Professor of Film Studies.
Food and wine sponsored by Fabrique Délices and Frenchery and networking.
