Dir: Sophie Fillières

Fr, 2018, 96 mins, French dialogue with subtitles
Writer-director Sophie Fillières has a knack for making off-kilter drama/comedies about women under the influence, showing them in various states of hilarity, disarray and despair. When Margaux Meets Margaux portrays not one but two such characters – who also happen to be the same person. Sandrine Kiberlain and Agathe Bonitzer take up the challenge of playing a woman at two stages in her life: one as she enters adulthood, the other as she reaches middle age.
