See the Best of Nouvelle Vague Director François Truffaut at Metrograph this August

Escape this blistering New York heat with some cool French culture in a chilly Lower East Side theatre.

From August 15 to August 24, the best films of French Nouvelle Vague cinema great Francois Truffaut will be screening at Metrograph. His films are romantic, haunting, curious, autobiographical, and above all, wistfully melancholic. “The Bride Wore Black” is a true revenge tale that was said to inspire Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.” Eschewing his Nouvelle Vague techniques, “The Wild Child” tells the story of an uncontrollable child’s education. His film “The Story of Adele H,” based on the diaries of Victor Hugo’s daughter, depicts a young girl destroyed by a man who rejects her incessant romantic propositions.

Tickets are $10 for Metrograph members ($15 for non-members) and should be reserved online in advance.
