Still in shock from the sudden death of her husband, Lola (Alysson Paradis) makes a snap decision to flee the funeral with her 7-year-old son and sister, Margaux (Élodie Bouchez, IN SAFE HANDS, GUY). As the impromptu escapade turns into a road trip through France, the long-estranged sisters are forced to contend with each other’s clashing personalities. The responsible and reliable Margaux bristles against Lola’s bohemian spontaneity, while the long hours on the road soon resurface unhealed wounds. Buoyed by stand-out performances from Alysson Paradis and Élodie Bouchez, AMORE MIO is an affirming story of re-discovering family and living life fully in the face of overwhelming grief.
