Something In The Air
A semi-autobiographical drama from director Olivier Assayas set in 1970s Paris
Fed up with her fuss-budget husband Molina and the miserable London weather, Lottie (Lawrence) rents a castle in Tuscany. To keep her company, she invites three other Englishwomen who are equally disillusioned with their domestic situations to come along. In Italy they get in touch with their emotions, have a few petty squabbles and generally try not to be English in a particularly English way. An undeniably pretty but ultimately vacant period drama, the acting, directed with the customary sensitivity by Newell, is top-notch with photography and locations to match.
It all adds up to a pretty film with nowhere to go.
