Palouse French Film Festival: Illusions perdues (Lost Illusions)

Tuesday, October 11 at 7 PM

Palouse French Film Festival presents ILLUSIONS PERDUES. Lucien de Rubempré, a young, lower-class poet, is madly in love with the baroness Louise de Bargeton (Cécile de France). The risk of scandal forces them to flee to Paris where they hope to live and love freely. Lucien soon finds rejection and loses the baroness’s support. He finds himself alone, penniless, hungry, and humiliated until the day he seeks revenge. Inside the Paris he so coveted, he finds a cynical world where everything – and everyone – can be bought and sold. ILLUSIONS PERDUES honors its classic source material with a beautifully acted drama that untangles knotty themes with infectious energy. Purchase your Film Festival Pass by clicking here.
