LATEST REVIEWS
'HOW TO BE A GOOD WIFE' TRAILER
It’s 1968. The immaculate and morally upright Paulette Van Der Beck and her husband Robert have been running Van der Beck’s School of Housekeeping and Good Manners in the lush regions of Alsace for over two decades, with the help of Paulette’s eccentric stepsister Gilberte and the school’s communist-fearing, ex-Resistance nun Marie, Therese.Their mission: to train teenagers to become perfect housewives, in times when women were expected to be largely subservient.

After an accident turns clockwork order into chaos, Paulette discovers that the school is on the verge of financial ruin. Forced to assume executive responsibilities, she is flustered even more by an encounter with her long-lost first love, André, who becomes relentless in his desire to rekindle their romance. Meanwhile, a sweeping nationwide protest movement is transforming the society around them, encouraging the school’s pupils to challenge authority and question their own desires and beliefs... Before long the entire group undertakes a journey of liberation, one that will transform all their lives.
