Tenderness (La Tendresse) by Marion Hänsel (Belgium/France, 2013, 80 min.). A couple, separated for the past 15 years, find themselves together again for the duration of a two-day journey to retrieve their son, who is hospitalized in another country after a serious ski accident. What do they still feel for one another—indifference, rancor, perhaps jealousy? Or maybe complicity, friendship, and love? This light-hearted road movie, with endearing performances from Olivier Gourmet and Marilyne Canto, allows us to discover two profoundly sincere beings for whom we can only feel affection.

Please use the Huntington Avenue entrance. Doors open at 5:30 pm.
