YELLOW EYES OF THE CROCODILES (France)

December 5, 2015 @ 9:20 am to approx. 11:45 am

COACHELLA VALLEY PREMIERE

Directed by Cécile TELERMAN

Synopsis

Based on the runaway bestseller, Katherine Pancol’s novel The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles – Editions Albin Michel.

When her chronically unemployed husband runs off to start a crocodile farm in Kenya with his mistress, Joséphine Cortès is left in an unhappy state of affairs.
The mother of two – confident, beautiful teenage Hortense and shy, babyish Zoé – is forced to maintain a stable family life while making ends meet on her meager salary as a medieval history scholar.
Meanwhile, Joséphine’s charismatic sister Iris seems to have it all – a wealthy husband, gorgeous looks, and a très chic Paris address – but she dreams of bringing meaning back into her life. When Iris charms a famous publisher into offering her a lucrative deal for a twelfth-century romance, she offers her sister a deal of her own: Joséphine will write the novel and pocket all the proceeds, but the book will be published under Iris’s name. All is well – that is, until the book becomes the literary sensation of the season.
