Studiocanal Boards ‘Primaire’ With Sara Forestier

PARIS– Vivendi-owned Studiocanal has come on board Helene Angel’s “Primaire,” a drama toplining French rising actress Sara Forestier (pictured above).

Marking Angel’s fourth feature, “Primaire” stars Forestier as a devoted 30-year old school teacher at a crossroad in life, facing challenges at work where she has to shepherd her fifth grade students and on a personal level as her son wants to go live with his father.

Forestier is a critically-acclaimed actress: She won a Cesar for her perf in “The Names of Love,” a best newcomer Cesar for “L’esquive” and last starred in Emmanuelle Bercot’s Cannes-opening “Standing Tall.” She stars in “Primaire” opposite Vincent Elbaz, Patrick d’Assumçao, Olivia Côte, Denis Sebbah, Guilaine Londez and Laure Calamy.

Under the lense of cinematographer Yves Angelo (“Second Wind,” “Germinal”), “Primaire” has just started shooting near Paris.

Pic is produced by Lionceau Films. Studiocanal is co-producing and handles all rights, including international sales.

Angel is known for directing socially-minded dramas such as “La Vie Parisienne” and “Skin of Men Heart of Beast.”

“Primaire” reflects Studiocanal’s desire to back more film directed/written by women or dealing with female protagonists. The company has just released Maiwenn’s “Mon Roi,” which premiered in Cannes and won Bercot a prize, in France.
