The Weinstein Company has released the trailer for the French comedy Populaire. The film is directed by Régis Roinsard, who wrote the screenplay along with Daniel Presley and Romain Compingt. Populaire stars Bérénice Bejo, Romain Duris, Déborah François, and Shaun Benson. The film is scheduled for a limited release in the United States on May 17th.
Populaire is set during the Spring of 1958. 21-year-old Rose Pamphyle (François) lives with her grouchy widower father who runs the village store. Engaged to the son of the local mechanic, she seems destined for the quiet, drudgery-filled life of a housewife. But that’s not the life Rose longs for. When she travels to Lisieux in Normandy, where charismatic insurance agency boss Louis Echard (Duris) is advertising for a secretary, the ensuing interview is a disaster. But Rose reveals a special gift – she can type at extraordinary speed. Unwittingly, the young woman awakens the dormant sports fan in Louis. If she wants the job she’ll have to compete in a speed typing competition. Whatever sacrifices Rose must make to reach the top, Louis declares himself her trainer. He’ll turn her into the fastest girl not only in the country, but in the world! But a love of sport doesn’t always mix well with love itself.
