The Woman in the Fifth

Rated R 84 minutes

A broke novelist (Ethan Hawke) moves to Paris in hope of reuniting with his estranged daughter, but instead he ends up getting involved with various shadowy characters. Writer-director Pawel Pawlikowski (My Summer of Love) adapted a novel by Douglas Kennedy, and unlike most literary adaptations this one actually conveys the pleasure of fiction, lingering suggestively on small details of character and place. The movie casts such a seductive air of mystery that the resolution feels anticlimactic, yet there's plenty to enjoy along the way, particularly Hawke's nuanced lead performance as a quiet man with secrets of his own. With Kristin Scott Thomas and Joanna Kulig (Elles). In English and subtitled French.
