Isabelle Huppert stars in this luminous portrait of a woman facing difficult changes in late middle-age: in the span of a few months, high school philosophy teacher Nathalie is left by her husband of 25 years, buries her mother, and learns that her publishing imprint is being terminated. Though her future looks bleak, Nathalie remains committed to her intellectual values and her personal mission to pass them on to her pupils.
Things to Come is an energizing reminder of the fortitude found in the life of the mind, powerfully channeled through Huppert’s intelligence, vitality, and unexpected flashes of humor.
“Huppert’s brilliance is indisputable, her performance alternately playful and deeply moving.“
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
