MUBI's take

Based on Irène Némirovsky’s acclaimed novel, Suite Française is an epic tale of forbidden love set amidst the beginnings of World War II that is equal parts ravishing, tragic, and baroque. Starring the likes of Michelle Williams, Margot Robbie, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Matthias Schoenaerts!
