The New York Film Festival has begun press screenings for their 2017 fest, which runs from September 28th through October 15th, and yesterday we decided we'd try to keep y'all in the loop with what we're seeing each day, since the blog will be quiet otherwise during those screenings. (Here's Day 1 if you missed it.) Eventually we'll review these movies for The Film Experience, but for now, this is just a preview. And here's what we're seeing today!
Mrs. Hyde (dir. Serge Bozon)
I've never seen any of Bozon's films before but how could I resist a loose re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic split personality tale of Jekyll & Hyde starring Isabelle Huppert as a downtrodden mathematics teacher who is struck by lightning and gains strange superpowers? I mean who would even want to resist such a thing?
