"Girls gone wild! Filmmaker Sophie brings her film, and her friends Carole and Camille, to the Locarno Film Festival. The festival is a merry-go-round of parties, and these girls are boy crazy—when Sophie’s not stalking Louis Garrel, ineffectual attempts to hook up with unimpressed guys, and emotional meltdowns, ensue. Sophie Letourneur’s comedy of arrested development is a delightfully giddy, screwball lark, a self-mocking, thirty-something French counterpart to Lena Dunham’s Girls. Are Letourneur, Camille Genaud, and Carole Le Page playing themselves? Espérons que non!" (Gavin Smith, Film Society of Lincoln Center)
Organized by Rajendra Roy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film.
