Dad in Training

Dir. Cyril Gelblat
(98 min, France, 2015)
French with English subtitles
Narrative
North American Premiere

Obsessed with producing a hit album, Antoine takes for granted his marriage to Alice, a beautiful, accomplished magistrate and loving mother to their daughters, until she throws him out, files for divorce, and leaves the girls on his doorstep for two weeks!

Frazzled by ordinary parental duties he’s routinely avoided up until now, Antoine sees this forced custody as a chore. As he gets to truly know his daughters for the first time, he discovers the joys of fatherhood, and in the process learns to fully live—and love.
