FILM – THE WORKSHOP [THE L’ATELIER]

Garter Lane, Tuesday 26th February @ 7.30 p.m.

From Laurent Cantet, writer-director of Palme d’Or-winner The Class, and writer Robin Campillo (120 Beats Per Minute) comes The Workshop, a riveting contemporary drama that blends social commentary with a complex study of the modern world. Set in La Ciotat, France, the film centres around Antoine (Matthieu Lucci), a teenager who attends a summer writing class. Alongside a group of other students, Antoine is tasked with writing a crime thriller with the help of celebrated novelist Olivia Dejazet (Marina Foïs, Polisse), on the basis that the final piece is connected with the town’s industrial past. While the class set about their projects, Olivia is captivated by Antoine’s anxious and aggressive behaviour. This is reflected in his prose, which becomes more violent and disturbing in its depiction of political radicalism – a provocative streak Olivia is at once troubled and fascinated by.

Written by Robin Campillo and Laurent Cantet. Directed by Laurent Cantet and starring Marina Foïs, Matthieu Lucci, Florian Beaujean.

Shown as part of the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival on Tour.
