Trailer Tuesday: The Father of My Children


A gentle and poised depiction of a family catastrophe makes “The Father of my Children” a rare cinematic gem.



Grégoire Canvel (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) is a charismatic art-house film producer juggling his attempts to keep his company out of the red and stay a dedicated family man. His elegant way of dealing with these challenges never reveals the depth of his despair. This beautiful drama, directed by promising young director Mia Love Henson, is based on the life of the troubled but hugely respected film producer Humbert Balsan.
