  • AFS Essential Cinema Plus: Celine and Julie Go Boating

    Rivette's quintessential film is a delightful romp that engagingly encapsulates the artist's lifelong themes about the nature of narrative and meaning. Foregrounding these weighty issues is the charming story of two women whose lives become inextricably bound through … Dreams? Magic? Intrigue? The viewers' perceptions? It's a classic work of cinema that simultaneously invites and defies interpretation.
