First Look: Michelle Williams as French Beauty in 'Suite Francaise'


The 'Dawson's Creek' darling stars as a spirited young woman who falls for a German officer during the German occupation of France.

"Suite Francaise" unveils a first look (via The Playlist) at Michelle Williams as a young Parisian woman who develops feelings for a handsome German officer while her husband heads off to war. The film, directed by Saul Dibb with him also writing the script along with Matt Charman, is set in 1940s France.

While her husband is away during the early years of German occupation of France, Williams' character, Lucile Angellier, is left under the supervision of her domineering mother-in-law. As the German officer, Bruno, is assigned to stay at their home, a powerful love draws them together and traps them in the tragedy of war.

Having wrapped its production, the $20 million budgeted drama is based on Irene Nemirovsky's best-selling novel of the same name. On board for supporting roles are Matthias Schoenaerts, Alexandra Maria Lara, Margot Robbie, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ruth Wilson and Sam Riley.

Xavier Marchand and Romain Bremond produce alongside Michael Kuhn and Andrea Cornwell. Harvey Weinstein, whose company, The Weinstein Co., acquires the distribution rights in the U.S., Latin America, Australia, Russia and Germany, serves as executive producer with Christine Langan.
