Amanda /  Amanda (15)

Vincent Lacoste leads Mikhaël Hers’ poignant new feature about trauma and its aftershocks. At first, David (Lacoste), in his early twenties, is just beginning to figure out life, helping his sister (Ophélia Kolb) raise her 7-year-old daughter, Amanda (Isaure Multrier), and gently initiating a romance with a pianist (Stacy Martin, Nymphomaniac). This era of placidity is brutally ruptured, and a grief-stricken David must assume new responsibility for Amanda, as a potential guardian. With an understated directorial touch, Hers creates a touching story of resilience, given depth by delicately nuanced performances.
