ROSE – International Women’s Day Screening

Fri March 8 @ 12:00 am - 3:00 am GMT

ROSE International Women's Day Screening

Co-Presented by Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History

Directed by Aurélie Saada | Narrative Feature | France | 2021 | 102 min | French and Yiddish with English subtitles

Rose (Françoise Fabian), a 78-year-old woman, has just lost her beloved husband of 50 years. A mother of three, all of whom are navigating their own personal issues, the recent widow is lost and adrift, confused as to how to move on to the next step in life while her large Tunisian Jewish family cares for her. Amidst her children’s worrying, family dinners, and endlessly lonely nights in her apartment watching TV, Rose develops a new yearning for adventure, a certain craving to be her own independent self. From ordering vodka at the bar, dancing to Sephardic tunes, making makroudhs, or flirting with a younger, handsome bartender, she discovers that it’s never too late to stop living. Rose’s choices are her own, and no one can stop that.

This International Women’s Day, get ready to fall in love with ROSE! Director Aurélie Saada makes a delightfully engaging debut in this lively film about family, grief, and being the creator of your own adventure. Screen legend Françoise Fabian gives a nuanced, impeccably layered performance as the lovable, strong-willed heroine steering her own path with confidence and wit. On this special day and every day, PJFM is proud to present a film that celebrates being an independent woman, no matter the age.
