Laurent Cantet, director of 2008 Palme Or-winning docu-drama‚ The Class, makes an enthralling return to form with‚ The Workshop; a topical fusion of political debate and social-conscious thriller, hot off its Un Certain Regard Premiere at Cannes Film Festival.

It is summer in La Ciotat in the South of France. Antoine (played by newcomer Matthieu Lucci) is taking part in a creative writing workshop run by novelist Olivia (Marina Fo‚ Papa ou Maman,).

Smart and loaded with teen angst, Antoine fascist sympathies lurk just beneath the surface and create friction within the group. However, Olivia is both alarmed and captivated by Antoines hostility and, as the workshop and its pupils gradually slip out of her control, her interest goes beyond mere intrigue into a fascination that is both intellectual and, at times, seductive.

Collaborating again with the co-writer of the‚ The Class, Robin Campillo (who took Cannes by storm with‚ BPM, also appearing in this years Festival), Cantet continues a predilection for dark, character-based story lines, tapping into the zeitgeist of fear and unease that is present in France today.
Starring‚ Marina Fos, Matthieu Lucci, Warda Rammach, Issam Talbi
