The Guardians (15)

Xavier Beauvois | 2017 | France | Switzerland | 132’

During World War I in France, women work the land while husbands, brothers and sons fight. Madame Hortense is the matriarch charged with the upkeep of the family farm, with the assistance of her daughter, Solange, and a hired help in the form of Francine. As sons, brothers, husbands and lovers come and go, tragedy seems inevitable in this exquisitely rendered period piece.
