The Midwife

The Midwife

About the Film

A touching and nuanced dramatic comedy about unlikely friendships, forgiveness, and the need for change, The Midwife centers around the newly resurfaced relationship between Claire (Catherine Frot), a talented but tightly wound midwife and single mother, and Béatrice (Catherine Deneuve), the estranged, free-spirited mistress of Claire’s deceased father. Though polar opposites in almost every way, the two come to rely on each other to cope with the unusual circumstance that brings them together in this sharp character study from French filmmaker Martin Provost (Séraphine).
