Labor Market: Laure Calamy Toplines Anne-Sophie Bailly’s Debut “Les Inséparables”

Anne-Sophie Bailly has lassoed the multi-faceted Laure Calamy for her feature debut, Les Inséparables. Originally titled Mona, according to the folks at Cineuropa, the family drama begins production in France early next month with the backing of Les Films Pelléas’ David Thion (we profiled back in 2018) and Philippe Martin. Bailly will re-team with her cinematographer Nader Chalhoub on the project.

This revolves around the relationship between a mother, Mona, who raised her disabled son alone and aspires to start caring for herself now that he’s a grown man. But when her son announces that he’s having a baby with his girlfriend, Mona finds herself with another heavy responsibility to bear.
