Brighton: Promise at Dawn

Drama

Charlotte Gainsbourg shines as the overbearing Jewish mother in this powerful adaptation of Romain Gary’s memoir. Believing in his potential from infancy and relentlessly pushing him to fulfil it, she was instrumental in her son becoming one of France’s 20th century literary giants. Although she is often delusional, her resourcefulness saves them from destitution in Lithuania and takes them to their promised land, France. Heartbreaking and funny in equal measure, Promise at Dawn is an ode to mother-child relationships – specifically Jewish yet universally relatable.

Nominated – BEST ACTRESS, CÉSAR AWARDS

“Recounted with a lot of verve and probably more than a little invention.” The Hollywood Reporter
