The Midwife

  • Carbon Arc Cinema 1747 Summer Street Halifax, NS, B3H 3A6 Canada (map)

dir. Martin Provost / France / 2017 / 117 minutes

Claire is honesty incarnate. As a midwife, she has devoted her life to others. At a moment when she is preoccupied by the imminent closure of the maternity clinic where she works, her life is further turned upside down when Béatrice, he father's former mistress, turns up on the scene. Béatrice is a capricious and selfish woman, Claire's exact opposite. With a combined 24 César Award nominations between them, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot bring all the power of the French acting world to this pleasing tale of friendship and mortality.
