Directed by David and Stéphane Foenkinos (France, 2017, 102 min.). Digital. French with English subtitles.

Nathalie Pécheux (Karin Viard) is an elegant literature teacher who dotes on her 18-year-old daughter, a talented classical dancer. Almost overnight, Nathalie undergoes a profound transformation of character, becoming bitterly jealous of her daughter’s youth and beauty. As her newfound jealousy spirals out of control, no one is safe—friends, neighbors, and colleagues become the target of her sour grapes. A smart, dark comedy about aging and the mysteries of the mind, Jealous raises thoughtful questions while delivering non-stop laughs.
