Athlone Film Club presents ‘The Midwife’

Next up as part of Athlone Film Club's new season is the Martin Provost directed The Midwife, which will show at the Dean Crowe Theatre on Tuesday, November 14, from 8pm.

Director Martin Provost unites two of France’s favourite actors in his tender comedy drama about female friendship and rediscovery.

Catherines Deneuve and Frot play very different women whose shaky reconnection after a number of decades allows them both to learn valuable life lessons from one another.

Claire (Frot ) is the conscientious midwife of the title, a single mother whose reservations and self-restraint have left her living an isolated life. That is until the day her deceased father’s ex-girlfriend makes contact.

Beatrice (Deneuve ) is a free spirited, professional gambler who wishes to reconnect with Claire’s father. Shocked at the news that he has passed away she implants herself into Claire’s life instead, bringing chaos, joy and memories of happier times.
