Come To Maman

I personally had thought that Céline Sciamma's follow-up to Portrait of a Lady on Fire, her whisper-slight but tremendously moving coming-of-age masterpiece Petite Maman, had already come out! I saw it at NYFF in September and I reviewed it right here and it was included in Neon's end-of-year screener box-set for 2021 awards consideration, so you'll excuse my naïveté. I guess it probably got a brief coastal-elites awards run and now comes the real deal -- it's out in theaters on April 22nd, and we have a new poster and a new trailer today. Really cannot recommend this one highly enough -- just an absolutely lovely little ball of wonderment. Seek it out the moment you can.
