Joan The Maid is a film in two parts (think Jean De Florette and Manon of the Spring), originally released theatrically in 1994 in the United States. It chronicles the life of Joan of Arc.
Joan The Maid: The Battles explores the revelatory period where Joan met with royalty, joined the army, and led the French into battle against the English. As Joan, Sandrine Bonnaire gets at the reality behind the legend, showing the matter-of-fact courage of a teenage girl.
In Joan The Maid: The Prisons Bonnaire taps into her character’s vulnerability as she plays out windows in the final two years of Joan’s life, from the battlefield victory to prison life to the stake.
Cohen Media Group has given the film a 4K restoration and its first theatrical release in the United States.
