Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn), Kristin Scott Thomas (The Invisible Woman) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone) lead this WWII drama about a taboo romance between a French villager and a German soldier in Nazi-occupied France. From the director of The Duchess.

When the two are introduced to German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts), they initially ignore any unnecessary contact with him. But Lucile and Bruno share a similar state of mind which draws them together, one that Madame Angellier does not approve of…
