The great Isabelle Huppert gives a profoundly moving performance as Nathalie, a philosophy teacher who finds her life unmoored by a wholly unexpected divorce in Mia Hansen-Løve’s (Father of My Children, Goodbye, First Love) terrific exploration of one woman’s complex emotional and intellectual response to the trials and tribulations of late-middle-age. Not sure whether to embrace the feeling of open-ended possibility that her husband’s departure engenders or curl up into a ball and cry over the profound disruption it causes, Nathalie moves forward with her classes at school, caring for her aging mother (the legendary Edith Scob, at her cranky best), etc. Slowly, organically—and this is where Hansen-Løve’s sensitive direction perfectly combines with Denis Lenoir’s smooth cinematography and Huppert’s bravura performance—Nathalie begins to make herself whole again…
