The Age of Reason
"After her winning turn in last year's smash hit LOL, the fabulous Sophie Marceau takes centre stage again in this feel-great romantic comedy from the furtive imagination of writer-director Yann Samuell (Love Me If You Dare).
"Margaret (Marceau) is a high-powered executive in the construction industry, who manages her career with steely determination. Her hyper-structured life revolves around Blackberry appointments, business dinners and a secret sexual relationship with her colleague Malcolm (New Zealander Marton Csokas). But on her 40th birthday, a retired provincial solicitor delivers a package of long-forgotten letters from a long-forgotten stranger: her seven year-old self. Margaret quickly finds herself overwhelmed by hidden memories of her childhood that throw her worldview into chaos, as she realises she's become the exact opposite of what she hoped for herself."
