Based on the international best-selling novel by Milena Agus, the France/Belgium co-production From the Land of the Moon is the story of a free-spirited woman fighting for her passionate dreams of true love against all odds.

Marion Cotillard (Rust and Bone) stars as Gabrielle, who comes from a small village in the South of France at a time when her dream of true love is considered scandalous, and even a sign of insanity. Her parents marry her to José (Àlex Brendemühl, The German Doctor), an honest and loving Spanish farm worker who they think will make a respectable woman of her. Despite José’s devotion to her, Gabrielle vows that she will never love him and lives like a prisoner bound by the constraints of conventional post-World War II society until she meets André Sauvage (Louis Garrel, Making Plans for Lena), a dashing injured veteran of the Indochina War, who rekindles the passion buried inside her..

Directed by actress-filmmaker Nicole Garcia (Place Vendôme), the drama-romance From the Land of the Moon was an Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival and received eight 2017 César Award nominations.
