Heal The Living, the third feature from French helmswoman Katell Quillévéré, continues the director’s moving explorations of humanity with a “sublimely compassionate, heart-crushing” (Variety) tale of a transplant donor and recipient, and the connections between their two worlds. Based on the Booker-nominated novel, Heal The Living features “luminous performances” (Screen Daily) by a major cast including Anne Dorval (Mommy), “impressive…resonant” (Hollywood Reporter) story, and a stunning score by Academy Award winning composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel).
