13 March @ Cinema Paradiso, Northbridge and Luna SX, Fremantle ·
Presented by Alliance Francaise de Perth ·

Join us on Wednesday 13 March for a screening of the hilarious romantic thriller; The Trouble with You, followed  by an after party (Northbridge ONLY) with food (cheese, obviously included), drink and entertainment.

Launching this momentous 30th birthday edition nationally will be The Trouble With You (En liberté!), directed by Pierre Salvadori (Beautiful Lies, Priceless) and starring Adèle Haenel, Pio Marmaï, Audrey Tautou and Damien Bonnard. Screening courtesy of Palace Films, this sparkling comedy set on the French Riviera, premiered as the centrepiece of Directors’ Fortnight at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, where it emerged as a huge audience hit.

An irresistible blend of laughs, action and romance, the story follows detective Yvonne, the principled young widow of the local police chief, who is horrified to learn that an innocent man has been languishing in jail for crimes committed by her late husband. Without a doubt, The Trouble With You is poised to weave its spell upon Australian audiences as it did in France, where it was a huge critical and box office success.
