Now Playing Synopsis: A supertanker captain seeks revenge on a businessman reputed to have destroyed his family, but uncovers a shocking secret that complicates his plan in this labyrinthine thriller from director Claire Denis. Veteran seaman Marco (Vincent Lindon) is commanding a vessel for the French Navy when he receives an urgent message summoning him back to Paris. Informed that his brother-in-law Jacques (Laurent Grévill) has taken his own life and Jacques' daughter Justine (Lola Créton) is in the hospital, Marco returns to the city to find his enraged sister Sandra (Julie Bataille) laying the blame for the failure of the family's shoe manufacturing business -- and the devastating fallout that resulted -- on shady financier Edouard Laporte (Michel Subor). Determined to see that Laporte pays for his crimes after the police dismiss her claims, Marco moves into the building where the entrepreneur's mistress Raphaelle (Chiara Mastroianni) resides with her son (Yann Antione Bizette), eventually luring the woman into a clandestine affair. Just as Marco's revenge plot begins to take form, however, a revelation about his sister Sandra hints that there may be more to this story than she has previously revealed. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Vincent Lindon, Chiara Mastroianni, Julie Bataille, Michel Subor, Lola Créton Movie Details Play Trailer Movie Review

Now Playing Synopsis: As directed by Alice Winocour, this period drama travels back to the Belle Époque of 1890s France for an intense chronicle of a young woman's sexual awakening. Soko stars as Augustine, a 19-year-old servant at an upper-crust home in Paris. One night, she lapses into a seizure while serving dinner, and the homeowners promptly have her shipped off to the Pitié-Salpêtriere Psychiatric Hospital, where numerous women are being treated for hysteria. Augustine catches the eye of Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot (Vincent Lindon), especially after he notices that her seizures are accompanied by intense bouts of physical pleasure. Fascinated, the doctor begins using the young woman for neurological experiments set up to study behavior under hypnosis. Over time, the dividing line between professional and personal begins to blur and the two are transitioned from doctor and patient to erotically intertwined lovers. Meanwhile, Augustine begins to subtly assume control over her circumstances. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi Cast: Vincent Lindon, Soko, Chiara Mastroianni Movie Details Play Trailer Movie Review
