After Father Of My Children, Goodbye First Love and Eden, acclaimed writer/director Mia Hansen-Løve’s poignant new feature is a resonant and affecting portrait of a fifty-something woman who, after living comfortably for many years, must suddenly reinvent her life.

Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert) teaches philosophy at a high school in Paris. She’s passionate about her work and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking to the next generation. Married with two grownup children, she devotes her spare time to the books she publishes as a sideline, to former students who have become friends and, above all, to her very possessive mother (the great Édith Scob). But one day, Nathalie’s husband Heinz (André Marcon) announces he is leaving her for another woman, the first of a series of events that will upend Nathalie’s world, and leave her to completely reassess her future…

Though Nathalie’s plight is familiar in real life, it is rarely thoughtfully depicted on screen, and this is a role seemingly tailor-made for the always compelling Huppert. Revolving around questions of happiness, of having a vocation and the value – or folly – of established ways of living, THINGS TO COME depicts not only one individual’s search for new avenues, it also gets to the heart of what constitutes a successful life.
