Skylab (2013)


Summary: It’s summer 1979 in Brittany, and a family gathers to celebrate the grandmother’s 80th birthday. The extended family are a garrulous collection and there’s a hint of tension in the air, as the Skylab is rumoured to return to earth during the same weekend – in either Brittany or Perth. This hilarious multi-generational comedy is seen largely through the eyes of 10 year old Albertine – playing perhaps the character of a young Julie Delpy. The adults’ behaviour is always colourful, often outrageous. Director, and star Julie Delpy shows a loving, guiding hand throughout proceedings.
