When soft-spoken film director Géraud Champreux (Johnny Rasse) arrives on France’s picturesque Normandy coast for screenings of his latest arthouse movie, there’s nobody there to greet him. But he somehow manages to attract a motley crew of locals who bring their own drama along on his little tour.

Rasse turns in a virtuoso performance, remaining composed even when the handsome star of Géraud’s own film arrives on the scene. The rest of the cast, including Mickaël Pelissier as a horny young projectionist and Nathalie Richard as a lovelorn cineaste, bring real humanity, as well as eccentricity, to their roles.

My Life with James Dean is a quirky comedy that not only celebrates the joy of cinema, but also serves as an ode to small-town life—a world where everybody’s into everyone else’s business and nobody takes any of it too seriously.
