Far and away one of our most-anticipated films of next year is the latest drama from Ira Sachs, whose wonderfully gentle, humane Little Men and Love is Strange were among the best films of their respective years. For his next film, he’s teaming with a titan of international cinema, Isabelle Huppert. Once titled A Family Vacation but now going by Frankie, the first poster has now been unveiled.

Also starring Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei, Greg Kinnear, Jérémie Renier, Ariyon Bakare, and André Wilms, it marks the director’s first time working outside the United States as production just wrapped in Portugal. Backed by Saïd Ben Saïd, it follows “three generations of a family grappling with a life-changing experience during one day of a vacation in the historic town of Sintra, Portugal.”

“I am working with some of my favorite actors in the world to tell this delicate story of a family in crisis,” Sachs said earlier this year. “Some like Huppert for the first time, and others whom I have collaborated with for years. The script [co-written with Mauricio Zacharias] has a theatrical quality, in that nine lives unfold in the course of one day, and it’s wonderful to have such a nuanced, risk-taking group of actors to bring the story to life.”

Check out the poster below, along with some Instagram snaps from set, for the film that will be released on France on September 25, 2019 and likely get a festival premiere prior to that.
