The Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Lewes Public Library and Movies at Midway present “The Day I Saw Your Heart” as May’s film for the Around the World series of critically acclaimed, international independent films. The award-winning drama will screen at 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 1, in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway. Admission to this film series is free and open to the public.
In this light-hearted comedy about the trials and tribulations of family life, Mélanie Laurent ("Inglorious Basterds," "La Rafle") stars as Justine, a 20-something commitment-phobe who works at an x-ray lab by day and as a creative artist by night. After dumping yet another boyfriend, she moves in with her sister Dom, who is trying to adopt a child. The sisters are united against their apparently selfish, cynical and heartless father Éli. Fate then takes an interesting twist when the girls’ 60-year-old father announces that his third wife is expecting a baby! Ironically, his daughter yearns for a child but has to adopt, while Éli seems less than thrilled to be a father once again. At the same time, in trying to get closer to his daughter, Éli succeeds in befriending Justine’s exes without her knowing. He almost ruins everything when Justine falls in love with Sami, who might be “the one." A hilarious and moving comedy, starring great actresses together with the brilliant Michel Blanc as Eli, “The Day I Saw Your Heart” screened at the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival in November 2012.
