Catch this super early preview of the comedy that people are describing as 'the French Frances Ha'! Fresh from its premiere at the London Film Festival, Jeune Femme will be released NEXT YEAR, so you'll be among the first to see it.

When a key doesn’t get Paula into her ex-lover’s apartment, her attempts at head-butting the door open also prove unsuccessful. A bleeding head wound opens this kinetic, urgent portrait of a heartbroken young woman who is her own worst enemy. Hauling the ex’s cat across Paris in a cardboard box, Paula’s days as a photographer’s muse are over. But she does possess a scrappy charisma and this magnetism is her ticket to clawing her way back to stability. Jeune Femme takes its cues from Laetitia Dosch’s impossible-to-take-your-eyes-off-her performance as Paula, hurtling through scenes to a post-punk electro score. Funny, moving and hugely invigorating.

REVIEWS 

Made in France with a modest budget but considerable insight, Cannes Camera d’Or winner “Jeune femme” was directed by La Fémis graduate Léonor Serraille — while pregnant, no less! — and features young women in nearly every creative role, from camera to composer, sound to set design.
— Variety
Moments of stillness are shot against azure blue, bubblegum pink or burnt sienna, creating striking images. Perky French electronica dominates the soundtrack, setting the tone for Paula’s irresistible momentum.
— Sight & Sound
Serraille has made a portrait of a very specific individual but that she’s also saying something more general about her own generation.
