Win one of 205 pairs tickets to see The First Day of the Rest of Your Life, a sprawling, heart-on-sleeve soap opera about the emotional machinations of an average, middle-class family. Written and directed by R? Bezan?, it opens with eldest son Albert (Pio Marmai) leaving home and mother Marie-Jeanne (Zabou Breitman) and father Robert (Jacques Gamblin) distraught at the prospect of one of their brood making his way in the big bad world. Still, theyve got their work cut out with their remaining two kids, air-guitar champion and ?slacker Rapha?(Marc-Andr?rondin) and grunge-obsessed mope Fleur (D?rah Fran?s). Following the children through adolescence and beyond, its a film that studies the special bonds between individual family members with a tender, occasionally wry eye.
