Marguerite
(nr) 127 min
in French with English subtitles

Nobody knows much about Marguerite Dumont except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings – wholeheartedly, but terribly out of tune. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. With the help of a has-been divo, both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.
