Alain (Guillaume Canet), a successful Parisian publisher struggling to adapt to the digital revolution, rejects the latest piece of veiled autobiography from author Léonard (Vincent Macaigne). But that’s ok: Léonard has his affair with Alain’s wife, actress Selena (Juliette Binoche) to comfort him. After all, his wife Valérie (Nora Hamzawi) has little time for his self-indulgence. But events force them into confronting their double lives in a comedy of art, affairs and midlife crises.
From director Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper, Clouds of Sils Maria) Assayas’s film paints a hilarious and sprightly portrait of high class people with low class values.
