Event description: 

From Rohmer’s “Comedies and Proverbs” cycle, THE GREEN RAY follows the independent but insecure Delphine (Marie Rivière), a newly single young Parisian who cannot find a holiday companion for the month of August, as she meets and rejects, glides and stumbles in her longing for connection. Overhearing a discussion of Jules Verne’s THE GREEN RAY, Delphine becomes fascinated with seeing the elusive meteorological event and the promise that comes with it. Rivière, who also cowrote her largely self-created role, delivers one of the most captivating lead performances in any of the filmmaker’s works. A perfect film if you’re young and don’t know what to do with your life, but also can’t explain to others why…
