On Tuesday, April 28th 2015 the 16th annual Newport Beach Film Festival will present its French Spotlight, an evening celebration of French cinema and culture. The event will feature the regional premiere of the award-winning film, Love at First Fight (Les Combattants), followed by a festive post-screening gala.
Love at First Fight is an emotionally complex and technically adventurous Rom-Com that couples a witty screenplay with a likeable cast. The coming-of-age tale situates itself around the relationship between a young woodcutter named Arnaud (Kévin Azaïs) and Madeleine (Adele Haenel), a girl with ambitions to become a paratrooper. The film flows with sharp humor as the two explore the adult world they will soon be entering. The debut feature from Thomas Cailley was awarded Best First Film at the César Awards, France’s National Film Awards Ceremony. The acting performances also earned the César Awards for Most Promising Actor and Best Actress. It premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where it received the FIPRESCI Prize in the Directors’ Fortnight Sidebar. Love at First Fight is directed by Thomas Cailley with performances by Adèle Haenel, Kévin Azaïs, Antoine Laurent, Brigitte Roüan, William Lebghil, Thibaut Berducat, Nicolas Wanczycki, Frédéric Pellegeay.
“The Festival continues a proud tradition of presenting the very best in contemporary French cinema. Love at First Fight director Thomas Cailley has constructed a phenomenal piece that will inspire and thoroughly entertain audiences,” stated Gregg Schwenk, CEO Newport Beach Film Festival.
The Spotlight film will screen on Tuesday, April 28th 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at Triangle Square Cinemas (1870 Harbor Boulevard in Costa Mesa, CA 92627).
