Event description
An sweeping account of the extraordinary life of renowned writer and war hero, Romain Gary.

About this Event

As much a sweeping drama of the extraordinary life of renowned writer and war hero Romain Gary, Promise at Dawn is a heartfelt testament to the special bond shared between a Jewish mother and son. The film follows the celebrated novelist from childhood poverty in Poland, to his education in France and exploits as a World War II aviator. This mélange of rich vignettes is seen through the prism of his relationship with his eccentric and domineering mother, Nina, who pushed beleaguered Gary to fulfill his potential. Nominated for five César Awards, this breathtaking saga contemplates the complex emotional truths of a parent’s self-sacrifice and impossible dreams for a child.
