The monthly French Cinémathèque series at the Avalon Theatre, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, presents the screening of the 2016 film The Country Doctor/Médecin de Campagne by Thomas Lilti.

Rolling off Hippocrates, which world premiered at the Cannes’ Critics’ Week to warm reviews, doctor-turned-filmmaker Thomas Lilti delves once again into the medical world with The Country Doctor. The social dramedy stars Francois Cluzet (Intouchables) as a devoted and revered countryside doctor whose life gets rocked by a middle-age woman who has come from the city hospital to earn her chops (Marianne Denicourt). Challenging each other with opposite views on medicine, the pair eventually bonds and learns from one another.
