Art student Sabine tires of her free and easy single lifestyle and decides she wants to get married. At a wedding reception she meets the suitable and dashing Edmond (thanks to matchmaker friend Clarisse), and engineers a romance for the most part in her own head, as he is not exactly on board.
From New Wave master Éric Rohmer comes A Good Marriage, the second film in his “Comedies and Proverbs” series. Taking as its inspiration La Fontaine’s proverb “Who has not built castles in Spain?”, this heartwarming dramedy watches a romantically dissatisfied young woman try to plot out love.
