150 MILLIGRAMS + A BAG OF MARBLES BUNDLE
In a hospital in Brest, a lung specialist establishes a direct link between suspicious deaths and the consumption of Mediator, a drug that has been on the market for 30 years. From its confidential beginnings to the media frenzy surrounding the case, this David-versus-Goliath story, directly inspired by Irène Frachon’s life, climaxes in a victory for truth.
A BAG OF MARBLES
Set during the turmoil and despair of World War II, A Bag of Marbles (also known as Un Sac De Billes) tells the remarkable true tale of two young French Jewish boys, aged 10 and 13, as they attempt the perilous journey to the southern Free Zone, to find relief and freedom from the impending Nazi occupation. With the aid of a helpful priest the boys are driven to step out of the shadow of evil and use their wits and charm to remain one step ahead of their persecutors, in order to survive.
Based on Joseph Joffo’s memoir and directed by award winning filmmaker Jacques Doillon (Raja, The Little Gangster), A Bag of Marbles is a moving story of brotherly love, tenacity and youthful resilience in the heartwarming tradition of Life is Beautiful and The Boy in Striped Pajamas.
