June 27 | 7:00 p.m

As part of its Summer film series "Once Upon a Time: From Books to Movies," the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 1946 film Sophie's Misfortunes by Christophe Honoré.

From her castle, young Sophie can't resist the temptation of the forbidden and what she loves most of all is to get up to no-good with her cousin Paul. When her parents decide to go to America, Sophie is delighted. A year later, she's back in France with her horrible stepmother, Madame Fichini.
But Sophie will be able to count on her two friends, model little girls, and their mother, Madame de Fleurville to escape from her stepmother's clutches.

This movie is inspired by the classic French children's books "Sophie's Misfortunes" (Les Malheurs de Sophie) and "Good Little Girls" (Les Petites Filles Modèles) by the Countess of Ségur.

Online registration is required for this free admission screening.
