JUST THE TWO OF US Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes

June 22 -9:00 PM

Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Beginning June 22, The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater presents Just the Two of Us, a closely observed domestic thriller adapted from Éric Reinhardt’s prize-winning novel L’amour et les forêts by Valérie Donzelli and Audrey Diwan.
When Blanche (Virginie Efira) meets the charismatic Gregoire (Melvil Poupaud) at a party her twin sister Rose drags her to, she thinks she has found the one. The ties that bind them grow quickly, and a passionate affair ensues. Rose has serious reservations about Gregoire, but against her better judgment, they decide to marry and move in together. Blanche and Gregoire soon relocate far from Blanche’s family where her new life begins; having two children, working as an elementary school teacher, and learning to tiptoe around Gregoire’s unfounded burgeoning insecurities. Little by little Blanche finds herself caught in the grip of a deeply possessive and dangerous man, desperate to escape his increasingly threatening affections. [2023, FRANCE, 1O5 min, Rating: NR, in French with English subtitles]
Todd Jorgenson of Cinemalogue says, “Richly textured performances help to elevate the film above assembly-line potboiler territory, resulting in a twisty and suspenseful domestic struggle that feels more taut than tawdry.”
Screening times are 9 pm on Sat (June 22), 3 pm on Sun (Jun 23), 7 pm on Wed (June 26) and 3 pm on Thu (June 27). Admission is $9 for members, $11.50 for general audiences and $5 for students (student tickets available only at the theater box office). Purchase advance tickets online at rehobothfilm.com or at the Cinema Art Theater box office in Lewes, Wednesday-Sunday from 12:00 Noon to 5:00 PM.
