Queen to Play / Joueuse
Caroline Bottaro, 2009. Color. 96 min.
With Sandrine Bonnaire, Kevin Kline,
In French with English subtitles
Oscar winner Kevin Kline, in his first French-speaking
role, and the luminous Sandrine Bonnaire square off in this
stylish and sophisticated dramedy of newfound passions and
mid-life triumphs, set on the picture-perfect island of Corsica.
Lovely, repressed, and quietly intelligent, French chambermaid
Hélène (Bonnaire) discovers she has a knack
for chess. This obsession—much to the chagrin of her
husband and teenage daughter—leads her to seek the
clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor, a liaison
that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives.
Presented in collaboration with Zeitgeist
Films which will release
Queen to Play on April 1, 2011.
“Bonnaire delivers a beautifully modulated turn....
Kline, in his first entirely French-speaking role, intriguingly
underplays as the mysterious Kroger.”—Frank
Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
“This cerebral chick flick could tickle arthouse
