A lonely woman finds a surprising soulmate in the French countryside
Award-winning writer-director Sophie Letourneur returns to LOCO with her latest film, a witty, delicate love story set in the lush French countryside. When Gaby suffers from depression her doctor recommends a break in his crumbling family home. At first the solitude seems crushing, but then she meets an enigmatic stranger. Has Beauty met her Beast?

“This subtly frantic romantic comedy by Sophie Letourneur is both a sentimental delight and a cinematic equation: add a budget, a script, and stars to a director of homemade, improvised, personal movies.” – The New Yorker
