Watch SIBYL on Virtual Cinema!

Lacking inspiration for her new novel, psychotherapist Sibyl (Virginie Efira) borrows source material from her newest patient Margot (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color), blurring fiction and reality in this sly, sultry character study from Justine Triet. Find SIBYL playing in select theaters and virtually with a local arthouse under “Theatrical Engagements” in the link below.
