"Best of all Daughter marks a return to old-school French moviemaking, the kind of classically well-made endeavor that unrolls before us like a beloved tapestry. This is the kind of film they don't make anymore, only here it is." Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times. Adapted from the Marcel Pagnol novel, a loving father in pre-World War II Provence is torn between his sense of honor and his deep love for his saintly daughter when she gets in trouble with the wealthy son of a shopkeeper.

107 minutes; French with English subtitles

Before The Devil Wears Prada, before Anna Wintour, there was Diana Vreeland. She was known as the "Empress of Fashion" and reigned over Harper's Bazaar andVogue for much of the 20th century, influencing everyone from Jackie Kennedy Onassis to Lauren Bacall. Interviewees include Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta and Manolo Blahnik, but it is the archival footage and the reenactments of the woman herself that offer a glimpse of her "pizzazz." Co-directed by her granddaughter-in-law, the film is stylish, breezy yet informative and at times poignant.
