Music Box Theatre Presents CATHERINE DENEUVE: Portrait of a French Icon
by Andrew Friday, March 18th, 2011 2:05pm
Music Box Theatre presents 5 classic Catherine Deneuve titles leading up to the release of “Potiche,” the new film by Francois Ozon starring the inimitable French actress herself!
Armed with her mother’s maiden name and her father’s acting prowess, Catherine Dorleac (daughter of French stage and screen actor Maurice Dorleac) became Catherine Deneuve — the icy icon of art house cinema best known for her work with directors Roman Polanski and Luis Bunuel.
Deneuve made her film debut at age 13 in Les Collegiennes (1956) and found stardom eight years later, thanks to a breakthrough role in the 1964 French musical Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg). Her subsequent roles in Repulsion (1965) and Belle de Jour (1967) solidified her international appeal, and an Oscar-nominated role in Indochine (1992) secured her place in movie history.
This retrospective will end with a special screening of Potiche on March 23rd where all ticket holders from any previous Deneuve screening will be invited to a free screening of this new Music Box Films release!
