Toronto 2014: 'The New Girlfriend' Review

One of the most underrated films of this year's festival was The New Girlfriend, the latest from prolific French writer-director Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, In the House). Romain Duris plays a husband and new father who's just lost his wife and as a result returns to an old habit: dressing up as a woman. What could be a bawdy farce instead turns into something darker, sexier and more thoughtful. I reviewed The New Girlfriend for Paste.
