ISMAEL'S GHOSTS TO BE RELEASED MARCH 23 IN NYC


ISMAEL'S GHOSTS



Legendary filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin (A CHRISTMAS TALE, KINGS & QUEENS, MY GOLDEN DAYS) opened the 2017 Cannes Film Festival with a truncated version of the intoxicatingly circuitous ISMAEL'S GHOSTS, starring César and Lumiere winner Mathieu Amalric, Cannes Best Actress winner Charlotte Gainsbourg and Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard. A full-length Director's Cut of the film - 20 minutes longer and markedly different in tone from the Cannes version - played at the New York Film Festival and will be released by Magnolia Pictures on Friday, March 23 in New York, with a national rollout to follow.


Twenty-one years ago, she ran away. Now, twenty-one years later, Carlotta (Cotillard) is back from the void. But Ismael (Amalric) has been busy rebuilding a life for himself with Sylvia (Gainsbourg) and working on his next feature film. As Ismael's trials and tribulations unfurl, so too do those of the film-within-a-film's protagonist: the idle, funny and reckless diplomat Ivan Dédalus (Louis Garrel).


The character is a nod to the ghost of another of Desplechin's creations, the brother of Paul Dédalus, three-time hero of MY SEX LIFE... OR HOW I GOT INTO AN ARGUMENT, A CHRISTMAS TALE and MY GOLDEN DAYS. With ISMAEL'S GHOSTS, Desplechin returns once more to the past and proves yet again that his brand of genius lies in his ability to find light in the darkest of places.
