French Film, Aurore, I got Life
A witty, insightful and entertaining film about Aurore, a 50 year-old woman looking for love and struggling to cope with men, work and other stresses.
I Got Life
Aurore with her friend
Aurore meets her daughter's boyfriend
Aurore is divorced, looking after her two teenage and maturing daughters and being plagued by hot flushes. She walks out on an obnoxious employer and then finds it difficult to get new work. She has plenty of advice from her friends, one of whom is a feisty feminist who puts real fear into men who make unwanted personal remarks in the street. It’s quite extraordinary to see one such man running away from this wild woman.
The film is very sympathetic, touching, and occasionally hilarious. It’s a great film and we will certainly watch it again
French with English subtitles. Currently it’s available on BBC iPlayer. Google play, YouTube, Apple TV, etc.
