Intimate Strangers
Griffith Theater, Duke Campus—For cinephiles of a certain age, the name Sandrine Bonnaire carries a special resonance. The actress first achieved spectacular acclaim at the age of 15 as the wanton, precocious and vulnerable girl at the center of Maurice Pialat's À Nos Amours. Before she was 20, she would also memorably drift through Agnès Varda's Vagabond. Because of these two early roles, she's personified a kind of nihilistic cool, become the darling of a generation of French directors, and of the young fans who saw those films. Bonnaire has made dozens of films in the subsequent decades, and she's always been remote and passively entrancing, even as the quality of her work has waxed and waned. Patrice LeConte's Intimate Strangers is one of her more notable recent efforts: Like so many French films, it's a slightly Hitchcockian exercise in which she visits a man she believes to be a psychiatrist and confesses things one should only say to a professional. The film begins at 8 p.m. Visit fvd.aas.duke.edu/screensociety/schedule.php for more information. —David Fellerath
