OUT 16 NOVEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

A sum­mer writ­ing class for bored French teens pro­vides fer­tile ground for heated de­bates on race, reli­gion and ter­ror­ism in Lau­rent Can­tet’s (The Class) slow-burn thriller. It utilises the trou­bling re­la­tion­ship be­tween Ma­rina Foïs’ suc­cess­ful nov­el­ist and the most gifted of her stu­dents (a riv­et­ing Matthieu Lucci) to in­ves­ti­gate the dan­ger­ous al­lure of right-wing pro­pa­ganda to Eu­rope’s dis­af­fected youth. Neil Smith
