Set among a small circle of friends and neighbors in a Parisian suburb, "35 Shots of Rum" is a warm, funny and enchanting film from the great French filmmaker Claire Denis. Lionel, a metro conductor, lives with his beautiful university student daughter Josephine in a bustling apartment complex. They have been sharing the same space for many years and have grown accustomed to one another's company. Lately, Josephine has been spending time with Noe, a handsome young neighbor, while Lionel is finding himself drawn into a romance with close friend Gabrielle. As their lives are pulled in different directions, father and daughter realize they must finally confront an aspect of their past in order to embrace what lies ahead. Sumptuously shot, this gloriously delicate and sublime new film casts a lovely spell unlike any other movie this year.
