On Sunday, July 14th, Sierra Cinemas/Nevada Theatre Film Series presents “One Nation, One King” at 7pm at the Nevada Theatre.
Get in the mood for Bastille Day by watching this lavish period drama, shot in Versailles, on the most important period of French contemporary history. Featuring a new generation of rising talents, the film brings back to life the tumultuous events of Bastille Day, July 14, 1789 through the eyes of the people who rose up to start the French Revolution.
Paris, 1789. The Bastille has been stormed and a breath of liberty blows through the streets of Paris. Françoise, a young washerwoman, and Basile, without a family or a name, discover the unique exhilaration of love and revolution. With their friends and the working-class people of Paris, they begin to realize dreams of emancipation in the newly formed assembly where they witness, with both hopes and doubts, the creation of a new political system. Their debates and the riots on the streets hold the fate of their once sacred king and the birth of a republic. In French with English subtitles.
“With its themes of national identity and the empowerment of women, it couldn’t be timelier.” –Demetrios Matheou, French Film Critic for The List
