April cover star Michelle Williams brings poise and poignancy to her role in Suite Française, an affecting World War Two drama.
She’s Lucile, a woman living in 1940s occupied France, waiting for news of her husband and barely tolerating her overbearing mother-in-law (Kristen Scott Thomas).
When they’re asked to provide shelter for a handsome German officer, Bruno (Rust And Bone’s Matthias Schoenaerts) Lucile’s head is turned - but what would the neighbours think, never mind her husband?
Based on the best-selling novel by Irene Nemirovsky, whose work was discovered by her daughter after her death, it feels heart-breakingly authentic, if not an easy watch.
Margot Robbie and Ruth Wilson co star.
Suite Française is in cinemas on Friday
