August 12, 2016
Riverviews Artspace at 901 Jefferson Street, Lynchburg VA
Join us at 7pm on the second Friday of each month for the Small Theatre / Big Screen film series.
It is summer, and 30-year-old Antoine is forced to leave the city to return to his family in Provençe. His father is sick, so he must assume the lifestyle he thought he had shed -- driving the family grocery cart from hamlet to hamlet, delivering supplies to the few remaining inhabitants. Accompanied by Claire, a friend from Paris whom he has a secret crush on, Antoine gradually warms up to his experience in the country and his encounters with the villagers, who initially seem stubborn and gruff, but ultimately prove to be funny and endearing. This surprise French box-office hit is about the coming-of-age of a man re-discovering life and love in the countryside.(from filmmovement.com)
