It's summer in Paris in 1942 and Irene is in love—in love with her studies as a young budding actress, in love with her life as a young woman in the city, and in love with her doctor’s handsome assistant. Preparing for the biggest audition of her life for a prestigious acting conservatory, Irene dreams about and works exuberantly towards her future. Carefree and joyful, she bounces from her classes to home where she playfully torments her family while practicing her craft, annoying them with her dramatic gestures and rehearsals. A sunny optimist, Irene does not sense the danger creeping towards her. Irene is Jewish, and the climate in Nazi-occupied Paris is changing quickly, threatening to take away everything Irene and her family have worked for. As the laws and regulations around the Jewish residents of Paris become increasingly stifling, Irene’s world is turned upside down. With the focus of the film artfully on Irene’s life and experiences, rather than the political turmoil in the background, A RADIANT GIRL is a portrait of a beautiful life cut short by a hideous part of history. —G.S.
