MISS (2021)

Ever since childhood, Alex had wanted to enter the annual Miss France beauty pageant, despite being a boy. However, adolescence was not kind and Alex suffered huge blows to his self-esteem. When an unexpected encounter allows Alex to once more pursue his dreams, he does everything he can to transcend the traditional binary gender definitions that threaten to hold him back.

It’s been years since middle-aged restaurateur Max has received his friends at his gorgeous summer house in the chic beach community of Cap Ferret. The group have traditionally reconnected there for his birthday, but since things didn’t exactly go as planned last time, they haven’t seen much of one another. It turns out Max is divorcing and his villa is up for sale, so when pals Marie, Vincent, now-famous actor Eric and his hapless buddy-turned-assistant Antoine arrive unannounced to celebrate a significant milestone, it’s not necessarily a welcome surprise.

Fifty-year-old Aurore Tabort, separated from her husband and newly unemployed, discovers she is to become a grandmother.

Aurore wonders if it might still be possible to embark on something new.
