No Adult Supervision: Monia Chokri Casts Herself & Nadia Tereszkiewicz in “Baby-sitter”

Late last month we learned that Monia Chokri has found her quartet of players for her sophomore feature film set to begin production this summer. With Baby-sitter, Chokri cast herself, Patrick Hivon (her second outing with the actor), Steve Laplante and French actress Nadia Tereszkiewicz (from Dennis Berry’s 2018 title Sauvages and last year’s Venice entry Only the Animals by Dominik Moll (read review). d’Amérique Film’s Martin Paul-Hus and Phase 4 Productions’ Fabrice Lambot are producing. Chokri’s celebrated debut film was the Un Certain Regard winning La femme de mon frère (A Brother’s Love).

Gist: Based on the play by Catherine Léger, this is about a recently unemployed man who repents by writing a book of apologies to women in his former workplace. He receives a huge backlash on social media for doing so.

Worth Noting: Chokri was working on Simple comme Sylvain, but it appears that she might be more comfortable working with someone else’s text on a Canada-France co-production as a second outing.
