About the film:

Official Selection, 2021 Cannes Film Festival

Paris, summer 1942. Irene is a 19-year-old aspiring actress without a care in the world. Her family watches her discover friends, new love and a passion for the theater, all the while without her realizing that time is running out.

Legendary French actress Sandrine Kiberlain makes her directorial debut with this allegorical coming-of-age drama set in Nazi-occupied France, that is in turns enchanting and devastating, anchored by a star-making lead performance by Rebecca Marder. A Radiant Girl (2023) shows both the dangers of complacency in the face of fascism, as well as the moments of beauty that are possible even under the hardest of circumstances.

About the filmmaker:

Sandrine Kiberlain is a French actress, singer, and filmmaker who has appeared in over sixty films and won two César Awards from eight nominations. Her most notable roles were in the films The Patriots (1994), A Self Made Hero (1996), For Sale (1998), Alias Betty (2001), Mademoiselle Chambon (2009), 9 Month Stretch (2013), and Number One Fan (2014). In 2021, she made her directorial debut with A Radiant Girl (2023), which competed for the Caméra d’Or for best first feature film at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.
