Monsieur & Madame Adelman
The decades-spanning tumultuous romance of a quintessentially French couple is chronicled in the thought-provoking and scathingly funny Mr. & Mrs. Adelman. Told in flashback from the early 1970s forward, this epic love-hate relationship begins as angst-ridden writer Victor meets Sarah, a brilliant doctoral student who falls head-over-heels. A complicated courtship and eventual marital discord ensue, as the egocentric Victor becomes a literary superstar and the enigmatic Sarah—his muse and steadfast source of strength—lingers in the shadows. Intimately detailing the intricacies of a lifetime of shared highs and lows, this saga of passion, betrayal, tragedy and unexpected twists of fate is co-written by the film’s two stars, Nicolas Bedos and his life partner Doria Tillier.
