Kirstin Scott Thomas, proficient in French, continues her career as a French movie star with In The House.
A 16-year old boy, Claude, (Ernst Unhauer) insinuates himself into the house of a fellow high-school student, Rapha, (Bastien Ughetto) and writes about his family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction for his jaded literature teacher, Germain (Fabrice Luchini). Intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events.
Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary art gallery director, who, alongside her husband, avidly follows Claude’s semi-imaginary escapades, while Emmanuelle Seigner plays Rapha’s mom, Claude’s object of desire.
A French film from the writer and director of 8 Women, Swimming Pool and Potiche.
