▶ An Interview With Anne Fontaine

French filmmaker Anne Fontaine has written and directed fourteen films since her debut in 1993. Her films Dry Cleaning (1997), How I Killed My Father (2001), and Coco Before Chanel (2009) brought her international attention as a writer-director, and her film Nathalie (2003) was adapted into Atom Egoyan’s widely released Chloe (2009), starring Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried, and Liam Neeson. Her film Adore (2013), which she adapted from Doris Lessing’s novella, The Grandmothers, starred Naomi Watts and Robin Wright and premiered at Sundance under the title Two Mothers.
