One Hour 48 Minutes
Chile- Spanish with English Subtitles
A story set in Santiago and centered on Gloria, a free-spirited older woman, and the realities of her whirlwind relationship with a former naval officer whom she meets out in the clubs. Chile’s official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards (R), and stars Paulina García
Not quite a comedy and not quite a drama, this Chilean film looks at middle age from a refreshingly even-handed perspective, not a wacky or tragic one. Peter Howell-Toronto Star.

Acclaimed director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women) helms this erotic tale of sexual awakening. After losing her virginity, 17-year-old budding beauty Isabelle (Marine Vacth) takes up a secret life as a call girl, meeting her older gentlemen clients for sleazy hotel room trysts.
“Tender, slyly funny and splendidly shot… easily the director’s best work since Swimming Pool.”
