Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert stars in THINGS TO COME, coming to The Frida Cinema for just four days this weekend!
What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? Nathalie (Huppert, in a radiant, award-winning performance) is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family (including frequent visits to her drama queen mother, played by the legendary Édith Scob). But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of twenty-five years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself.Find out more »
