Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert) teaches philosophy at a high school in Paris. She is passionate about her job and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her very possessive mother. One day, Nathalie's husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With freedom thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent her life. Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve.

This is an incredible film. Its portrayal of steady, unyielding resilience in the face of upheaval and disarray is inspirational. It is directed and acted so naturalistically that it almost instills an optimism that one day you too, when you find yourself at your lowest, will be able to ride out the trough with the perseverance and vitality of Nathalie. I can't remember a film I've enjoyed more and I can't recommend it highly enough!
