2013_Feb5_LaPrincesseThe Tournées Festival is a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring contemporary French cinema to American college and university campuses.

This week’s movie is based on the 1622 novel of the same name by Madame de Lafayette. Bertrand Tavernier’s supple, gripping historical epic unfolds during the French Wars of Religion (1562–98), which pitted Catholics against Protestants and ravaged the nation. The film centers on Marie de Mézières, who, though in love with one man, the Duke de Guise, is married off by her politically calculating father to the Prince of Montpensier.
