That giddy, all-consuming thrill of first love is conveyed with great empathy in La belle saison. It is 1971 and smart, young Delphine is bored at home on her parents’ farm in the verdant French countryside. She flees to Paris and immediately falls for older Carole (Cécile De France, In Harmony, 2016 PIAF), a leader in the emerging women's rights movement. La belle saison is many things all at once – a swoon-worthy love affair, a fascinating snapshot of the 1970s and a window to female friendships across a cultural divide.
