Emmanuelle Bercot’s Cannes Winner ‘My King’ Set for U.S. Release

Film Movement has acquired U.S. rights to Maïwenn’s “My King,” which garnered a Best Actress prize for Emmanuelle Bercot at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

The film co-stars Vincent Cassel and will make its U.S. premiere at New York City’s “Rendez-vous with French Cinema” on March 9 and 10. Film Movement made the deal with Studiocanal and will release the film theatrically later this year.

“My King” opens with Bercot’s character recovering from a skiing accident at a rehabilitation center and looking back on the turbulent relationship she experienced with the charming but extremely self-centered lothario Georgio (Cassel). While she recovers physically, she explores her metaphysical pain, questioning what attracted her to Georgio in the first place.

Variety‘s Peter Debruge gave the film a strong review at Cannes: “Bercot is heartbreaking, and Cassel has never been better, while the supporting cast — especially Louis Garrel as Tony’s brother Solal — raises the game of the two lead actors.”

“My King” has been nominated for eight Cesar awards and is Maïwenn’s fourth film. Her last film, “Polisse,” won the Jury Prize at Cannes in 2011.

Alain Attan is the producer. It’s a Les Productions du Tresor presentation, in co-production with Studiocanal, France 2 Cinema, Les Films de Batna, Arches Films and 120 Films.
