Actors: Leïla Bekhti, Géraldine Nakache, Patrick TimsitWritten, directed and co-starring Géraldine Nakache, I’ll Go Where You Go reunites her with Leïla Bekhti (AF FFF19, Sink or Swim; also starring in The Perfect Nanny at this year’s Festival) after their previous smash-hit collaboration, All that Glitters (AF FFF11). I’ll Go Where You Go is the tale of two estranged sisters with a well-meaning father, Léon (Patrick Timsit, AF FFF18’s Closing Night film, 50 Is the New 30), who attempts to heal their sibling divide.
As the movie’s title suggests, Québec’s most beloved popstar Céline Dion lies at the heart of sisters Mina (Bekhti) and Vali’s (Nakache) emotionally uplifting road-trip. Although Mina struggles to cope with Vali’s naïve ambitions to become a famous singer, when their sick father asks Mina to travel with Vali to a career-making audition, Mina reluctantly agrees. Where the adventure leads the estranged sisters will surprise both the family and the audience.
Nakache captures a vital and sincere energy brought to life by Dion’s iconic tunes. In keeping with the songs made so famous by the beloved pop diva, emotions run high in I’ll Go Where You Go, resonating, universal themes of family, love and the healing power of great music.
