Post-film discussion hosted by Joe Meyers of the CT Post

This gentle, closely observed autobiographical tale, a first film by director Diane Kurys, was championed by critics and audiences alike at the time of its release and hailed as a refreshing female take on the coming-of-age story. It concerns the experiences of Anne and Frédérique, the 13- and 15-year-old daughters of a separated Jewish couple. They are attending a grim, rule-crazy school in the early 1960s. Anne, the quiet sister, tries to find out what is going on around her by eavesdropping on her mother and her older sister. Frédèrique, the more outgoing sister, has a crush on someone much older than herself. Together the sisters navigate teachers at school, romantic pangs, and changing times.
