One Fine Morning

Families, lovers and artists are familiar terrain for French auteur Mia Hansen-Løve. Here she gifts us a finely-tuned, quietly contemplative portrait - co-produced by UK-based distributor MUBI - of a single mother contending with a new relationship and an ailing father. Lea Seydoux is radiant, the script wry and at times achingly sad, and Paris sparkles in the sunshine.
