Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) is superb in Suite Française, a profoundly moving drama based on the wartime memoirs of Irène Némirovsky which, after their rediscovery in 1998, became a publishing sensation. It’s set in 1944 in a small French town during the Occupation, where Lucille (Williams) lives unhappily with her controlling mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) as they wait for news of her POW husband; when German troops occupy the town one of the commanding officers (Matthias Schoenaerts) is billeted with Lucille, and the two begin a hesitant relationship which brings into focus Lucille’s real feelings and allegiances.
