One of the most popular collections at our Library just happens to be one of my personal favorites: movies, documentaries, and TV shows for kids and adults! We have more than twenty new DVDs that just arrived to the Center and will soon be available for you to check out. Here's a sneak peek!

Chocolat

Roschdy Zem, 2016
Reserve it!

A biographical drama about Chocolat the Clown starring Omar Sy (Samba, Les Intouchables) and James Thierrée. I loved learning more about the lives of two Belle Époque entertainers in this film dotted with celebrity, fortune, and struggles on a challenging rise to fame.


La guerre des boutons / War of the Buttons

Yann Samuell, 2014
Reserve it!

Yann Samuell's adaptation of Louis Pergaud's book pays homage not only to the original text, but also to Yves Robert's 1962, black-and-white classic. You'll enjoy this movie about the nostalgia of childhood in 1960's France.


Un petit boulot / Odd Job

Pascal Chaumeil, 2016
Reserve it!

Romain Duris and Pascal Chaumeil are back together again following L'Arnacoeur. Duris' character, Jacques, accepts to work with a mafia criminal, played by Michel Blanc, after months of unemployment in this dark comedy...


L'étudiante et Monsieur Henri / The Student and Mister Henri

Ivan Calbérac, 2016
Reserve it!

A young student comes to live with a certain - very surly! - Monsieur Henri, who can no longer reside alone in his Parisian apartment. Family drama, chaos, and life lessons follow...


En mai, fais ce qu'il te plaît / Come What May

Christian Carion, 2015
Reserve it!

I loved Christian Carion's Joyeux Noël and can't wait to see how he brings to life this historical drama about the start of World War II in France.


Hitchcock/Truffaut

Kent Jones, 2015
Reserve it!

The Los Angeles Times deemed this "a love letter to film itself"; what better way to unite France and Hollywood? Discover more about the conversations between cinema geniuses Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut in this documentary with English and French extracts, interviews, and subtitles.
