The Workshop

Part of the French Film Festival 2017 Season

Body

Laurent Cantet (Cannes Palme d’Or winner for The Class) here returns to top form by mixing social relevance and tension as his characters, all high school students off for the summer, attend a workshop for fictional writing headed by well-known French novelist Olivia (Marina Foïs). The multiculturalism is, like most of France, represented in the group with Arabic, African, and Spanish among the dozen or so students attending the workshop. The main character, Antoine (Matthieu Lucci), is a white-nationalist-minded teenager who, in his free time, watches right-wing videos about guns and reflects on France’s lost cultural identity. Olivia soon finds herself fascinated by the angry-eyed Antoine, because, for all of his troubling views, he happens to be an astute literary critic.
