French Film Fans, You Will Be My Son opens on Friday!
Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Hey French Film Fans,

This week, we open You Will Be My Son, a favorite at this year’s Chicago French Film Festival. A passionate and demanding winemaker, unsatisfied with the prospect of his son taking over his vineyard, finds a more talented protégé. Starring Niels Arestrup (A Prophet, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly), the New York Observer calls it, “A slick psychological thriller with Shakespearian shadings”. Read below for showtimes.

Wednesday, October 2nd – Tuesday, October 8th, 2013


You will be My Son (Tu seras mon fils)

A film by Gilles Legrand starring Niels Arestrup, Lorànt Deutsch, Patrick Chesnais


“The parallel dramas underline the universal theme of primal jealousy, as fathers confront the prospect of their sons superseding them.”
–Stephen Holden, New York Times

Passionate about wine and his work, Paul (Niels Arestrup) is the proprieter of his family’s prestigious estate. Disheartened by the thought that his son Martin (Laurent Deutsch) will inherit the business and by the fact that his hard-working estate manager is dying, Paul rejects his own son in favor of Philip (Nicolas Bridet), grooming him to be the rightful heir. Work, love and wine all play key roles in this fascinating family drama.
