Legendary French actress Françoise Fabian delivers a wonderful performance as a recent widow reawakening to life’s possibilities in the warm and engaging French drama, Rose. After her beloved husband’s death, Rose is uncertain how to navigate life again. But her sorrow soon gives way to a deep thirst for life as she embraces new experiences and long-ignored aspirations–much to the surprise of her adult children. Drawing heavily from her Tunisian-Jewish roots, actress-screenwriter Aurélie Saada’s directorial debut is richly textured with Sephardic and Ashkenazi atmosphere and is a tender reminder that it’s never too late to find fulfillment.
