& How to Watch Them:

Polisse (2011): Yeah, they were right to award this the Jury Prize at Cannes. Maïwenn wrote, directed and played the bespectacled photographer in this raw, compelling drama about Parisian cops who fight crimes against children by day, then struggle to maintain some semblance of personal lives and happiness when they’re off the clock. The dance scene is everything.



My King (2015): Intense. Uplifting. Sad. Insightful. The full cycle of a relationship that should burn out like a Roman candle but instead flickers hopefully…despite the odds and information we gain as viewers along the way, which makes us root for Emmanuelle Bercot’s character all the more.
