ALICE Cinema Screenings

Happily married Alice’s (Emilie Piponnier) life is turned upside down when she discovers her husband (Martin Swabey) has spent all their money on prostitutes and they are now a year behind on their mortgage. In a last-ditch bid to support herself and her child, Alice becomes a high-end escort, which challenges her perceptions of life and love. At times bitterly funny but always brutally honest, the film traces Alice’s journey to her own kind of freedom

Writer-director Josephine Mackerras’s powerful debut feature won the Grand Jury Award at SXSW, and has recently won the ‘Spirit of The Festival Award’ at the 27th Raindance Film Festival.

“France’s answer to Carey Mulligan (…) Piponnier dominates every frame with a mesmerizing screen presence.” – Indiewire
