Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite)

Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite)
Christophe Honoré | France | 2018 | 123m | 15

Paris, 1993. Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a semi-renowned writer and single father in his thirties trying to maintain his sense of romance and humor in spite of the turmoil in his life and the world. While on a work trip to Brittany, he meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), an aspiring filmmaker in his early twenties, who is experiencing a sexual awakening and eager to get out of his parochial life. Arthur becomes instantly smitten with the older man. From writer-director Christophe Honoré (Love Songs, Dans Paris) comes a mature and deeply emotional reflection on love and loss, and youth and aging. In its inter-generational snapshot of cruising, courtship, and casual sex – Jacques’ forty-something neighbor Mathieu (Denis Podalydès) rounds out the triumvirate – Sorry Angel balances hope for the future with agony over the past in an unforgettable drama about finding the courage to love in the moment.
Described by film critic Robbie Collin as “just so drippingly French, all breezy beauty and smoke-wreathed, bookish wit.”
