The feature film, produced by Curiosa Films and E.D.I Films and globally distributed by France tv distribution, will have its world premiere at the 60th Critics' Week Special Screening. The 74th edition of Cannes Film Festival also happens to be one of 2021's first festivals with in-person attendance.
"We are honored to be the international distributor of Sandrine Kiberlain's first feature film, which was an immediate hit crush within our team. This film is a wonderful opportunity for us to partner up once again with Curiosa Films " states Catherine Bernard, COO of France tv distribution.
"A Radiant Girl" talks about Irene, a young Jewish girl of 19 who is bubbling with energy, during the summer of 1942 in Paris. Her family watches her discover the world, her friends, her new love, and her passion for the theater. Irene wants to be an actress and she lives life with the characteristic carefreeness of youth. But Irene does not know that her days might be numbered.
Rebecca Marder plays Irene in this drama, alongside André Marcon, Anthony Bajon, Françoise Widhoff, India Hair and Ben Attal.
