Paris, 1993. Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps, Stranger by the Lake) is a successful novelist in his thirties who is at a crossroads in his life. He lives with his young son and is dealing with being HIV positive, trying to maintain his sense of romance and humor in spite of the turmoil in his life and the world. While on a work trip to Brittany, he meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste, Hippocrates: Diary of a French Doctor), an aspiring filmmaker in his early twenties, who is experiencing a sexual awakening and eager to get out of his parochial life. Arthur becomes instantly smitten with the older man and follows him back to Paris. From writer/director Christophe Honoré (Love Songs, Dans Paris) comes a mature and deeply emotional reflection on love and loss, and youth and aging. In its inter-generational snapshot of cruising, courtship and casual sex—Jacques’s forty-something neighbor and friend Mathieu (Denis Podalydès, Caché) rounds out the triumvirate—Sorry Angel balances hope for the future with agony over the past in an unforgettable drama about finding the courage to love in the moment. Winner of the Prix Louis Delluc. (Fully subtitled)
