Simone Veil, A Woman of the Century

Simone Veil, A Woman of the Century

Celebrate the monumental life and legacy of Simone Veil, one of the most beloved Frenchwomen of all time.

The extraordinary life of French feminist icon Simone Veil is brought to the silver screen in this moving and monumental biopic from director Olivier Dahan (La Vie en rose).

Starring Elsa Zylberstein (An Irrepressible Woman) and Rebecca Marder (A Radiant Girl, also in JIFF 2022), Simone Veil offers an intimate and epic portrait of an singular woman who eminently challenged and transformed her era defending a humanist message still keenly relevant today.
