You Will Be My Son


Wednesday, May 20, 2015
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


“The most quietly terrifying presence in film today belongs to a gray-haired, 64-year-old French actor with a Danish name. If you are familiar with Niels Arestrup’s work, you don’t need any convincing. If you’re not, You Will Be My Son is all the persuading you’ll need.” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)

In a powerful performance, Niels Aretrup (Diplomacy, A Prophet) plays Paul, the demanding proprietor of his family’s prestigious wine estate. Lacking faith in his own son, he dreams of a harder-working, more effective successor. This suspenseful melodrama, shot on location at the Château Clos Fourtet in the French region of Saint-Émilion, explores the meaning of work, love, and family— all steeped in the sophisticated world of wine production.

Followed by a wine reception.
