French acting icon Isabelle Huppert (Elle) unites with the sublimely accomplished filmmaking talent Mia Hansen-Løve for this emotionally stirring portrait of a teacher whose life hits a crossroads of crises.

A remarkably honest, sensitively realised reflection on middle-age, the film charts philosophy professor Nathalie (Huppert) as she comes to terms with their loss of her mother, her job and her husband of 25 years.

Despite the life-altering turn of events, Things to Come ultimately posits an optimistic outlook on the situation, as a story of resilience and the potential for a fresh start later in life… Huppert is, as ever, a magnetic presence, delivering an understated turn of incredible warmth and empathy.

Hansen-Løve’s sublime, mature meditation on time, philosophy and politics garnered the Silver Bear prize at Berlin Film Festival, breathing emotional complexity into its portrait of one woman’s passion for life as a professor, undeterred by life’s testing hardships.

This film is screening at Tyneside Cinema as a part of our season Things To Come: The Films of Mia Hansen-Løve, click here to find out more.
