Paducah, KY – The Labor Day weekend traditionally heralds the end of the summer, and this makes this week's feature at Paducah's Maiden Alley Cinema all the more appropriate. The French film, "Summer Hours" is about endings as well, following three siblings as they deal with the passing of their family's beloved matriarch. Todd Hatton speaks with Maiden Alley's Larry Thomas about the movie.
Juliette Binoche in SUMMER HOURS
"The divergent paths of 3 forty-something siblings collide when their mother, heiress to her uncle's exceptional 19th century art collection, dies suddenly. Left to come to terms with themselves and their differences, Adrienne (Juliette Binoche), a successful New York designer, Fr d ric (Charles Berling), an economist and university professor in Paris, and J r mie (J r mie Renier), a dynamic businessman in China, confront the end of childhood, their shared memories, background and unique vision of the future."
