“As complex as it is compassionate, ‘Other People’s Children’ features standout performances, and no end of nuance. For the incurable romantic and cynic in equal measure, this film deserves to be seen by a big audience.” – Martin Carr, We Got This Covered
Rachel loves her life, her students, her friends, her ex, her guitar lessons. When she falls in love with Ali, she grows close to his 4-year-old daughter, Leila. She tucks her in, looks after her, and loves her like a mother… which she isn’t. Not yet. Rachel is 40. The desire for a family of her own is growing stronger, and the clock is ticking. Is it too late?
Written and directed by Rebecca Zlotowski (“Planetarium”, “Grand Central”), “Les Enfants des autres” (“Other People’s Children”) earned Virginie Efira the 2023 César Award for Best Actress.
