Event Details

Please join us for our virtual version of Soirée Cinéma! We can’t gather together in our cozy library —
but let’s watch a film and then meet online via Zoom for a lively discussion.
May’s film is “Au Galop” (“In a Rush”), a comedy-drama written, directed by and starring
Louis-Do de Lencquesaing.
The movie is free to watch anytime at (A number of other feature-length and short films are also available for free until May 25.)
To participate in the online Zoom discussion, RSVP to by 4 pm Friday, May 22.

Description: Actor-turned-director Louis-Do de Lencquesaing’s first feature centers on divorced writer Paul, struggling in his relationships with student daughter Camille, mother Mina, and potential partner Ada. However, Ada has complications of her own; she lives with her partner and young daughter. As her relationship with Paul develops, she must make a choice. A leisurely paced family drama in which each character has their own subplot of romantic difficulties, the film is elegantly crafted, with a keen eye for the nuances of the various relationships, and marks an assured debut.

Save the date for next month’s Soirée Cinéma online discussion on 7 pm Friday, June 12!
We’ll be discussing “Ce qui nous lie” (“Back to Burgundy”), which is available on
The film is free for Amazon Prime members or $1.99 to $2.99 to rent.
