Gala Presentation

La Bonne Epouse (How to Be a Good Wife)
Maintaining a household and stoically submitting to conjugal duty are the skills Paulette Van Der Beck teaches with fervor in her homemakers institute. Her certainties are shaken when she finds herself widowed and ruined. Is she rattled by the return of her first love or the wind of freedom in May '68? What if the good wife finally became a free woman?

Tenir son foyer et se plier au devoir conjugal sans fléchir : c’est ce qu’enseigne avec ardeur Paulette Van Der Beck dans son école ménagère. Ses certitudes vacillent quand elle se retrouve veuve et ruinée. Est-ce le retour de son premier amour ou le vent de liberté de mai 68 ? Et si la bonne épouse devenait enfin une femme libre ?

Available for a 24 hour period, starting at 7:00PM on Tuesday, September 22nd.
Ticketholders have 24 hours to complete the stream once they start a particular presentation.
