Things To Come poster
The power of Isabelle’s performance is stunning. I found myself haunted by Things To Come, long after I’d seen it, and maybe that’s the best judge of how a film has affected you.

Perfect! Hansen-Løve and Huppert prove a dream partnership for this gorgeous, heart-cradling drama. Hansen-Løve’s rotating sensibilities as intellectual, humanist and sensualist converge most satisfyingly, and Huppert further stakes her claim as our greatest living actress: this is a major, many-shaded work even by her lofty standards. Could hardly be lovelier.

After Father Of My ChildrenGoodbye First Love and Eden, acclaimed writer/director Mia Hansen-Løve’s poignant drama is a resonant and affecting portrait of a fifty-something woman who, after living comfortably for many years, must suddenly reinvent her life.

Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert) teaches philosophy at a college in Paris. She’s passionate about her work and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking to the next generation. Married with two grownup children, she devotes her spare time to the books she publishes as a sideline, to former students who have become friends and, above all, to her very possessive mother (the great Édith Scob). But one day, Nathalie’s husband Heinz (André Marcon) announces he is leaving her for another woman, the first of a series of events that will upend Nathalie’s world, and leave her to completely reassess her future… 

Though Nathalie’s plight is familiar in real life, it is rarely thoughtfully depicted on screen, and this is a role tailor-made for the always compelling Huppert. Revolving around questions of happiness, of having a vocation and the value – or folly – of established ways of living, THINGS TO COME depicts not only one individual’s search for new avenues, it also gets to the heart of what constitutes a successful life.
