Type: Film

In 1645, the French playwright and actor Jean-Baptiste Poquelin—better known as Molière— mysteriously disappeared for several weeks. This lavish comedy drama imagines a scenario that could explain what may have happened to him. Molière (Romain Duris) is touring the French countryside with his traveling theater company but has yet to be recognized as one of the Continent’s great authors (or achieve significant financial success). When the wealthy Monsieur Jourdain (Fabrice Luchini) offers to cover his debt, so that Molière’s theatrical talents might help Jourdain win the heart of a certain widowed marquise, hilarity ensues.

Rated PG-13. In French, with English subtitles.
