Anaïs in Love, a buoyant French comedy, follows spirited and romantic thirtysomething Anaïs in her manic search for stability. Behind on her rent, contemplating breaking up with her boyfriend, and struggling to complete her thesis, she searches for inspiration while hurtling through lovers with abandon. When an affair with an older book publisher leads to her falling for his live-in partner, a brilliant and luminescent novelist, things get especially messy. This effervescent, cliche-shattering feature debut weaves a tale of self-discovery as literate and delightful as it is unexpected, keeping both Anaïs and viewers off-balance until the very last moment.
