In limited release, the French-language drama Café de Flore reaches Atlanta this weekend following a successful release in Canada. The film tells two seemingly separate stories. In modern day Montreal, a man named Antoine is torn between a complicated relationship with ex-wife Carole and a budding relationship with new girlfriend Rose. In 1960s Paris, a woman named Jacqueline is protective of her son Laurent, a boy with Down syndrome who has a crush on his friend Véro. Both stories share a common thread of love, and both stories connect in an unusual way. But you’ll have to see it to figure out how. It’s worth the price of admission, though. With a solid cast and heart-wrenching story, Café de Flore is a great choice for filmgoers looking for something different this weekend.
