The New Girlfriend (2014)

François Ozon directs Romain Duris, Anaïs Demoustier and Raphaël Personnaz in this cross dressing romance where a widower begins to find comfort in his dead wife’s clothes, while her best friend discovers that this new emerging personality will fill various voids in her life.

A sexy exploration of gender roles that never descends into obvious farce or trite melodrama. Playful, acted with subtle nuance and explicit nudity, this is a love letter to believing in who you are and embracing change. Undemanding and lovely to watch.
