Lucie Borleteau’s second feature outing, Chanson Douce, is an adaptation of Leila Slimani’s eponymous novel. Myriam, a mother of two, decides to return to work despite her husband’s reservations. They find Louise (Karin Viard), a babysitter who immediately wins the affections of the children. Soon, however, a co-dependent relationship ensues and eventual tragedy.

Followed by a Q&A on 10 January with actress Karin Viard.
