The Names of Love

The new movie, The Names of Love, written and directed by Michel Leclerc opens at the Rafael Theatre on Friday, July 29th. This film follows the romance of the free spirited Baya Benmahmoud (Sara Forestier) and the middle aged Arthur Martin (Jacques Gamblin). This seemingly incompatible couple are able to connect despite their racial identity
and clash of ideals. First shown in France, The Names of Love has already picked up a Cesar (French Oscar) for Best Actress.
