Augustine (Rendez-Vous with French Cinema)
Miami Shores, FL
Based on a true case, writer-director Winocour has adapted a true case of a progressive 19th century doctor/therapist and his unusual patient into a study of personal wills, hidden desires and reversals of fate. A maid who suffers from seizures is sent to a mental hospital, where she appears to be condemned for life until Professor Charcot finds in her the possibilities of testing his advanced notions of the sources of so-called “hysteria.” Soko as Augustine and Vincent Lindon as Charcot deliver astonishing performances. A Music Box Films release.
With post-screening Q&A with director Alice Wincour!
