The Woman in the Fifth (15)

Pawel Pawlikowski returns with his first feature since My Summer of Love, with this beguiling, beautifully-shot thriller.

American writer Tom Ricks (Hawke) comes to Paris desperate to put his life back together and win back the love of his estranged wife and daughter.
When things don’t go according to plan, he ends up in a shady hotel in the suburbs, having to work as a night guard to make ends meet.

Then, Margit (Scott Thomas), a beautiful, mysterious stranger walks into his life and things start looking up.

Their passionate and intense relationship triggers a string of inexplicable and dangerous events that threaten both Tom and his daughter… as if an obscure power was taking control of his life.
