LOST ILLUSIONS

LOST ILLUSIONS

Presented by Austin Film Society at AFS Cinema

Winner of seven César Awards, including Best Film. In 1821, Lucien de Rubempré (César winner Benjamin Voisin) arrives in Paris as a sensitive, and idealistic young poet determined to write a reputation-making novel. Instead, he finds himself swept into journalism, whose influence and reach is booming with the help of the printing press, widely available of late. Under the mentorship of cynical editor Étienne Lousteau (César winner Vincent Lacoste), Lucien agrees to write rave theater reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience. With this sweeping adaptation of one of Balzac’s greatest novels, Xavier Giannoli crafts a classic tale of corruption that resonates today. With an all-star supporting cast including Cécile De France, Xavier Dolan and Gérard Depardieu.
