Lighthouse International Film Society Offers Virtual Screening of "FRANCE" by Bruno Dumont

(LONG BEACH ISLAND, NJ) -- The Lighthouse International Film Society presents a virtual screening of FRANCE (French with English subtitles). Lea Seydoux primarily holds the center of Bruno Dumont's unexpected new film, which starts out as a satire of contemporary news media before steadily spiraling out into something rich and darker. The film is available for screening online from January 14-31.

Set in contemporary Paris, FRANCE stars Seydoux as France de Meurs, a seemingly unflappable superstar TV journalist juggling her studio show, reporting on a distant war, and her rush of family life. Her high profile world is turned upside down after she injures a delivery man in a traffic accident, triggering a series of self-reckonings and a strange romance that proves impossible to shake.  Never one to shy away from provoking his viewers, Dumont's latest is tragicomic and deliciously ambivalent- a very 21st-century treatment of the difficulty of maintaining identity in a corrosive culture.

The Lighthouse International Film Society offers a virtual screening of Bruno Dumont’s FRANCE from January 14-31. Tickets are $12 and available for purchase online.  

If you are so inclined to have some French wine while watching, head over to Shell Liquor for 10% off of all French wines during the screening dates when you mention the film and Lighthouse International Film Society..  And if you are interested in joining our French Wine, Cheese and Chat Happy Hour, meet us on Zoom on Sunday, January 30th from 5:00pm-6:00pm.

Sponsors include The Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences and LBI Shell Liquors, who made bringing this film to LBI possible.
