In first-time director Judith Herry’s tragi-comedy NUMBER ONE FAN, Sandrine Kiberlain (LIFE OF RILEY) stars as Muriel, a beautician who, for the past two decades, has been French crooner Vincent Lacroix’s (Laurent Lafitte: BRIGHT DAYS AHEAD) number one fan. She spends most of her free time keeping up with his new songs and his shows. Then one night, she opens her door to find Vincent – her idol – standing on her doorstep.
