SKYLAB
Le Skylab
2011, Film Distribution, 114 min, Dir: Julie Delpy

Writer-director Julie Delpy drew from childhood memories to create an affectionate ensemble comedy about a family reunion in the summer of 1979. Seen through the eyes of precocious 11-year-old Albertine (Lou Alvarez), traveling with her left-wing parents (Eric Elmosnino and Delpy) to attend her grandmother’s birthday party in Brittany, this nostalgic tale strikes a knowing balance between childhood pleasures and fear that the sky – or in this case, Skylab – is falling.
