Written by Ollivier Briand (to whom we owe the idea for the film), Mauricio Carrasco and Baptiste Drapeau, the story centres around Julie who, following her mother’s death, leaves the rural lands she has grown up in in order to begin an auxiliary nursing course in a big town. She moves in with Elizabeth, an elderly lady who gives her a room in exchange for a few favours. Jacqueline lost her husband Victor twenty years previously and has never accepted his passing. She continues to live as if he were still there and, implicitly, asks Julie to play along. Thus begins an unbearable menage à trois…

The Lodger is produced by Thierry Lounas on behalf of Capricci, with Baptiste Bauduin Lauben and Marie Ballon of Mon Ballon Productions taking on the role of associate producers. Filming will continue in Bordeaux until 29 November, with François Ray (who likewise graduated from La Fémis in 2018, having worked with the director on his earlier short works) in charge of cinematography. Capricci will manage distribution in French cinemas (via Les Bookmakers, the dedicated body which the group co-founded in league with The Jokers), while international sales are in the hands of WTFilms.
