The Workshop

Drama, Mystery 1h 53m 2017

The scene is set one Summer in La Ciotat, a town near Marseille which used to be prosperous thanks to its huge dockyard but has been in decline since its closing 25 years before. It is in this context of quiet desperation that a writing workshop has been set up to help a group of seven young people integrate into the world of work.

“It’s a measure of this film’s stealthy brilliance that it blurs the line between empathy and exploitation.” ~The New York Times

“It’s a film which demonstrates that debate, the exchange of ideas, can be as thrilling as any ramped up action flick.” ~The Guardian
