Anais in Love
Anais in Love

Flighty, impulsive, and carefree to a fault, Anais struggles to pay her rent, hold down a job, and finally finish her thesis that’s months overdue. Her irresistible charm barely keeps her afloat as she flees from one version of love or lust to another. Traditional monogamy with boyfriend Raoul doesn’t suit her. Her brief love affair with Daniel, a married man as old as her father, is lukewarm at best (but his home is at least a place to land for the time being). These relationships feel more like hobbies than commitments until Anais discovers Daniel’s effortlessly beautiful wife Emilie. Immediately enamored by Emilie’s captivating aura of mature elegance, Anais rearranges every part of her already-haphazard life just to be near her. Intrigued by Anais’ forward advances, Emilie finds herself cautiously yearning for desires she thought she’d outgrown. Dripping with French sensuality, ANAIS IN LOVE flows like a poetic dance of forbidden passions that lovers rarely pursue, for fear they may bring the ultimate pleasure. —A.B.
