It’s a summer of revolution for Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert). The high school philosophy teacher has
just found out her husband of 25 years is leaving her. Suddenly, in her 60s, she’ll be alone and
unmoored, with no more excuses for not putting the theories she’s been teaching for years into
practice. The way is wide open, but the journey seems terrifying. Huppert’s performance crafts a
warmly hued portrait of a woman whose life unravels yet flows stubbornly, and even humorously,
onwards. Things to Come is a warm, funny and profoundly sensitive portrait of letting go and
learning to make new memories.
