Oscar-winner Kevin Kline and the luminous Sandrine Bonnaire square off in this stylish and sophisticated dramedy of newfound passions and mid-life triumphs, set on the postcard-perfect isle of Corsica. Lovely, repressed and quietly intelligent, French chambermaid Hélène discovers she has a knack for chess. This obsession—much to the chagrin of her husband and teenaged daughter—leads her to seek the clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor -a liaison that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives. In French with subtitles.
