Saturday Night Cine Club - Return of the Hero

Saturday, November 17, 2018 @ 7:30pm
Theatre Charlotte
Presented by Charlotte Film Society
The story begins in 1809 with the suave and courtly Captain Neuville (Dujardin) showing up on horseback at the chateau of the maidenly Elisabeth (Laurent). He’s there to ask her brat of a younger sister, Pauline (Noemie Merlant), to marry him, but just when her parents (Evelyne Buyle, Christian Bujeau) accept the proposal he’s sent off to fight in one of Napoleon’s wars and disappears without a trace. In order to save her sister from heartache, Elisabeth decides to forge letters from Neuville that relate his wartime gallantry and later on, his heroic death in India. 

Cut to three years later, with Neuville arriving back in town alive and well, although he’s turned into a drunken lout. Looking for a way to cash in on his engagement, he shows up at Pauline’s as an alleged war hero, only to find she’s married a milquetoast if arrogant nobleman (Christophe Montenez). With nothing to lose and much to gain if he plays his cards right, Neuville crashes the family estate and boasts about his exploits, with only Elisabeth aware that he’s a con artist. But he’s onto her as well, and the rest of the film consists of one long cat-and-mouse game.

Guest speaker will lead a discussion after the screening.

Run time 90 minutes.
