For his follow up to 2011’s run-away hit Potiche, acclaimed French auteur François Ozon presents a captivating thriller with blackly comic tones. Based on Juan Mayorga’s play The Boy in the Back RowIn The House stars heavyweights of French cinema Kristin Scott Thomas, Fabrice Luchini and Emmanuelle Seigner in a dangerous tale of intrigue and deception. Literature teacher Germain is jaded by his mundane work life and his marriage is far from perfect. His passion for teaching is unexpectedly reignited by a gifted student who shows considerable literary promise, but whose essays and means of inspiration begin to blur the boundaries between reality and fiction.
