After a devastating breakup, the only place twenty-three-year old Jeanne has to stay in Paris is the small flat of her father, Giles. But when Jeanne arrives, she finds that her father’s new girlfriend has moved in too: Arianne, a young woman her own age. Each is looking for their own kind of love in a city filled with possibilities.
Lover for a Day premièred in the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, where it was awarded the SACD prize from the French Writers and Directors Guild, and is an Official Selection of the 2017 New York Film Festival
"Packs a whole lot of nuance and romantic consideration into its bracingly curt run time." **** Little White Lies
