Post by Oxnard Montalvo » Sun Jun 09, 2019 11:49 am

Corrie Class Trip is a project where we rotate the selection of a title for group watches on an appointed day/date to then discuss [previous iterations linked below]. We welcome all to participate and share their thoughts and feelings! The fourth viewing for Round 4 is scheduled for Saturday, March 9th. Please post about the film itself and your experience with it in this thread, and any off-topic posts about the series itself in the Class Trip Discussion Thread.

Thanks and enjoy!!!

xoxo,
your classmates

Fat Girl aka À ma sœur! (Catherine Breillat, 2001)
À ma sœur! is a provocative and shocking drama about sibling rivalry, family discord and relationships. Elena (Roxane Mesquida) is 15, beautiful and flirtatious. Her less confident sister, Anaïs (Anaïs Reboux), is 12, and constantly eats. On holiday, Elena meets a young Italian student (Libero De Rienzo) who is determined to seduce her. Anaïs is forced to watch in silence, conspiring with the lovers, but harbouring jealousy and similar desires. Their actions, however, have unforeseen tragic consequences for the whole family.

I'll sit this one out since I've already seen it, but I just wanted to say you're in for a treat. Truly inspiring and uplifting cinema.
