French Film Review: Schoolmates!

French Film Review: Schoolmates!

Juliette is not having the best time of it: the school she taught in has burnt down, and her class will have to be split up and found places at other schools across the département. Determined not to let that happen, she comes up with a plan: to move her class to Les Coquelicots, the local retirement home. For the children and the elderly residents, it’s going to be one heck of a learning curve – but it’s a lesson that will transform them forever.

Director Sophie Boudre was inspired by a true story in which a nursery was set up in a retirement home in the United States and decided to explore the idea in this charming, funny and very definitely heartwarming movie.

Director: Sophie Boudre
Starring: Alice Pol, Jonathan Zaccaï, Eddy Mitchell
