Sandra (Léa Seydoux) is so busy working as a freelance translator, being an attentive single mother to her eight-year-old daughter (Camille Leban Martins), and caring for her aging father (Pascal Greggory), she feels her love life is behind her. But that changes when she runs into her old friend Clément (Melvil Poupaud). Illuminating the wonder and turbulence of everyday life, One Fine Morning highlights the ways in which we give ourselves over to love, regardless of the pain it can cause us. A profoundly resonant chronicle of love and loss.

Léa Seydoux shines … The French actress is superb in this tender portrait of a woman trying to balance her needs with those of others. Thomas Floyd, Washington Post

Hansen-Løve’s latest, best described as bittersweetly breezy, is a film about the impermanence of what we love, but also of what burdens us. Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist

An immensely satisfying collaboration that finds both auteur and star further solidifying their spots among the greats of their respective fields. Jon Frosch, Hollywood Reporter
