La Rosalie

Production on Stéphanie Di Giusto‘s sophomore feature took place in October of last year and it features the likes of Nadia Tereszkiewicz (a true breakout in Les amandiers), Benoît Magimel, Benjamin Biolay, Gustave Kervern, Guillaume Gouix and Juliette Armanet. Di Giusto’s debut film was 2016’s La danseuse – selected for the Un Certain Regard section in Cannes. Written by Stéphanie Di Giusto, Sandrine Le Coustumer and Alexandra Echkenazi, La Rosalie is inspired by Clémentine Delait – known as France’s bearded lady. Trésor Films’ Alain Attal is producing.

Gist: This is set at the end of the 19th century and recounts the destiny of the first bearded woman, at the heart of a love story.

Release Date/Prediction: This will attempt a Cannes showcase, but there might not be enough time in post so we’re leaning with a possible Venice/TIFF showcase.
