A new French satire on the bourgeoisie from Michael Haneke (Amour, The White Ribbon, Hidden). Isabelle Huppert stars as Anne Laurent, the matriarch of a rich family riven with dysfunction and secrets. The Laurent's estate is in Calais where always to be seen in the background are asylum seekers looking for safe haven. When her mother falls ill, young Eve is sent to live with her estranged father’s relatives in Calais. The Laurent family own a large construction company and live in a sprawling mansion house, waited on by servants. But trouble is brewing in the form of a lawsuit, family back-stabbings and Eve's own dark secret. Happy End was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
