"The superb acting, directing, and exquisite score of La Ceremonie combine to create an unnerving mixture of kindness and evil. This masterpiece of storytelling seems more relevant than ever, elevating a classic noir mood to unforgettable social commentary."

When Catherine Lelievre hires rigid, taciturn Sophie, she thinks she has found the perfect housekeeper for her family’s remote mansion in Brittany. But, detached and automated, Sophie displays odd behavior that becomes inexplicably disturbing. When she becomes friends with the impertinent, outspoken busybody Jeanne who runs the post office, the tension between Sophie and her employers increases.
