French film Divines to premiere November 18th on Netflix
Divines, one of the most critically acclaimed and talked-about films at this year's Cannes film festival, will be available to Netflix members exclusively on November 18th.
The funny, suspenseful and often emotional drama tells the story of Dounia, a tough, but naive teenager who sees getting rich or dying trying as her most viable option in life. Set in a ghetto near Paris where drugs and religion reign supreme, Dounia is hungry for her share of power and success. Enlisting the help of her best friend she decides to follow the footsteps of a respected and successful neighborhood dealer. But when Dounia meets a strong-willed and sensual dancer, her life takes a surprising turn.
Houda Benyamina's energetic directorial debut was awarded the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for the best first feature film presented in one of the event's selections.
