After having a successful theatrical run in France last year, The Weinstein Company are hoping U.S. audiences connect with Populaire this fall. Coming from writer-director Régis Roinsard, they’ve now debuted the charming first domestic trailer for the film that follows a receptionist with a particular gift. Set in the 1950s, the film stars Romain Duris (The Beat That Skipped My Heart), Déborah François (L’enfant) and the Oscar-nominated Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) and one can see the trailer below.
Rose Pamphyle (Déborah François), 21, is determined to break free from her stifling existence. Living with her widowed father and dreary husband, she seems destined to remain a bored housewife. That is, until she applies for a job at an insurance agency and the charismatic boss offers her a job.
Despite making a terrible receptionist, she types exceptionally fast. Suddenly, Rose finds herself entering a typing contest and is thrust into a completely new world.
Populaire opens on September 6th.
