This week’s film in the Stocker Arts Center’s Film Series

This week’s film in the Stocker Arts Center’s Film Series on the Lorain County Community College campus. Films are featured on Fridays at 7:30 p.m. in the Hoke Theatre:

The Bélier Family (La Famille Bélier)
Friday, February 22, 7:30 p.m.
2015 (Not Rated) 105 min. France/Subtitles
Director: Eric Lartigau
Cast: Louane Emera, François Damiêns, Karin Viard

Eric Lartigau’s fabulous, heart-felt comedy hit is about a young girl whose close bond to her hearing-impaired family is challenged by the discovery of an extraordinary talent for music.

In the Bélier family, everyone is deaf, except dutiful sixteen-year-old Paula. She acts as an indispensable interpreter for her parents and younger brother, especially in the running of the family dairy farm.

Though her salt-of-the earth father has decided to run for mayor - spurred on by her vivacious but over-involved mother - Paula’s attentions are very much elsewhere. She’s witnessed the handsome new boy at school sign up for the choir, and impulsively joined too.

It’s not long before her music teacher discovers her considerable talent; however, his encouragement only exacerbates the matter of Paula’s independence.

Emera, making her screen debut after being discovered on the French edition of The Voice, is a genuine revelation. She lends both sincerity and joy to this deeply moving film that has been a word-of-mouth phenomenon across Europe, achieving over 10 million admissions to date and becoming France’s most popular film of 2015.
