Palouse French Film Fest: Standing Tall

When: Tue., Oct. 10, 7 p.m. 2017

Join the U of Idaho and WSU throughout October for the Palouse French Film Festival. Abandoned by his mother at the age of 6, Malony is constantly in and out of juvenile court. An adoptive family grows around this young delinquent: Florence, a children’s magistrate nearing retirement, and Yann, a caseworker and himself the survivor of a very difficult childhood. Together they follow the boy’s journey and try unfailingly to save him. Then Malony is sent to a stricter educational center, where he meets Tess, a very special young girl who will show him that there are reasons for hope.

Price: $5; free for students.
