From François Ozon (In the HousePotiche) comes the powerful family drama Everything Went Fine in which a daughter is forced to reconcile with her father and their shared past after he contacts her with a devastating final wish.

When André (André Dussollier, Micmacs) suffers a debilitating stroke and calls on his daughter Emmanuèle (Sophie Marceau, Beyond the Clouds) to help him die with dignity, she finds herself faced with a painful decision.

Based on Emmanuèle Bernheim’s memoir and an Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival, Everything Went Fine’s matter-of-factness elicits moments of humor that renders an otherwise weighty topic accessible. Steering clear of the moral arguments such issues often raise, the film instead focuses on the reckoning Emmanuéle has with her stubborn and unrelenting father and how to help him, with Ozon tackling a difficult subject with exceptional intelligence and sensitivity.

Featuring stunning central performances by Marceau and Dussollier as well as a scene-stealing cameo by Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter) as André’s ex-wife.
