(Populaire is a French language film with English subtitles)
Set in the 1950s, POPULAIRE is the extraordinary tale of Rose, a shopkeeper’s daughter who dreams of escaping the trappings of her small village and a lifetime of drudgery as a housewife.
Determined to make something of herself Rose travels to the city to try out for a job as a secretary. Interviewing the scores of female candidates is the charming bachelor and former sportsman, Louis Echard.
Lacking the necessary style and grace to perform the role Rose’s interview is a disaster but at the last minute she reveals a special gift – she is a speed demon on the typewriter! Seeing an opportunity to re-live his glory days as a competitor, Louis employs Rose and begins an intensive training regime to get her ready to compete in the country’s cut-throat typing contests.
Displaying an eye-popping visual style and dazzling costumes, POPULAIRE is a chic and sumptuous romance, sparkling with vintage Hollywood charm.
