Maine Film Center, 93 Main Street, Waterville, Maine
Part of CINEMA EXPLORATIONS, a wintertime community-curated film series. Free admission, made possible by theColby Center for the Arts and Humanities. Between Two Worlds features Juliette Binoche and is adapted from Florence Aubenas' bestselling nonfiction work Le Quai de Ouistreham (The Night Cleaner). Binoche poses as Marianne, a deserted wife who joins the workforce as a cleaner, performing hard work at an unforgiving pace for low pay in homes, hotels, businesses, and even on ferries that course the high seas. She takes all she has seen and the stories she’s been told to create an exposé of exploitation. Lauded by readers and critics, she rationalizes her deception of her co-workers as being necessary for a greater good. But how do these women really feel about Marianne, who had been a friend and confidante? In English, and in French and German with English subtitles.
