It might have been possible to fashion a first-rate nonfiction film out of the Laëtitia story, but it is only through actors and their direction that we get the full picture. Mr. De Lestrade is using the tools of fiction to tell a story all too true.
LAËTITIA is an anguished, impeccably made mini-series based on a 2011 murder case that riveted France. Writer/director De Lestrade pieces together a somber portrait of a provincial society awash in male anger and violence and a bureaucracy whose good intentions can be thwarted by budget cuts, political posturing and demoralization.
The sumptuous film, based on Cuarón’s own childhood, reverberates not only with innocence but with the awful intuition of its collapse.
