Summer In the Forest (PG)
Dir: Randall Wright, UK/Fr, 2016, 108 mins, French dialogue with subtitles

Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled ‘idiots’, locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release. Together they created L’Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris and a quiet revolution was born. Now in his 80s and still at L’Arche, Jean has discovered something that most of us have forgotten – what it is to be human, to be foolish, and to be happy.
