FRA | 2021 | dir. Emmanuel Courcol | with Kad Merad, Marina Hands, Laurent Stocker | UK Premiere

Étienne (Kad Merad), an often-out-of-work but endearing actor, runs a theatre workshop in a prison, where he brings together an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s seminal play Waiting for Godot. When he is allowed to take the colourful band of convicts on a tour outside the prison, Étienne finally has the chance to thrive. Each date is a new success and a unique relationship grows between this ad hoc group of actors and their director. But soon comes the final performance in Paris. Will their last night together be the biggest hit of them all? An uplifting comedy inspired by true events.
