Directed by Sophie Letourneur | 2010

With Sarah-Jane Sauvegrain, Eulalie Juster, Mahault Mollaret

A slice of life, gorgeously shot, with a great eye for the quirks of humanity and the comedy in everyday moments... An accurate and affectionate portrait of that precarious time in a young person's life…when you can still get away with acting silly and immature, but at the same time, the adult world is starting to call to you.
—Sheila O’Malley, Slant Magazine

US Theatrical Premiere Run!

In her debut feature, which has drawn comparisons to late French masters Rohmer and Rouch, Letourneur insightfully and humorously portrays the seemingly quite happy daily life of a small group of bohemian girls living together on the left bank in what they call their “Ranch.” A tight-knit circle of 20-somethings, Lola, Pam, Manon, Chloé and Jude—all played by non professionals, and all friends in real life—are smart, somewhat naïve, and often temperamental, spending their days drinking, smoking, laughing, dancing, gossiping, and discussing their love lives, until each realizes they must break from the group to pursue their own lives.

Part of ACID’s 2010 Cannes sidebar, La vie au ranch  was a festival favorite, screening at Viennale, Vancouver, Sydney, Belfort (where it won the Best French Film Award), and the International Film Festival Rotterdam, for which it traveled to Brooklyn as part of 2010’s Rotterdam@BAM. Letourner’s semi-autobiographical first feature seamlessly combines performances from amateur actors, layered dialogue, and real-life cast experiences.
