On a rainy day in spring, Mary-Jane, a divorced mother of two of almost 40, falls in love, or rather slides in love with a boy of nearly 15, Julien, a classmate of her daughter who is obsessed with video game.
Varda’s sensitive drama sees real-life mother and daughter Jane Birkin and Charlotte Gainsbourg exchange roles in a quietly transgressive look at the family institution.
