American writer Tom Ricks comes to Paris desperate to put his life together again and win back the love of his estranged wife and daughter. When things don’t go according to plan, he ends up in a shady hotel in the suburbs, having to work as a night guard to make ends meet. Then Margit, a beautiful, mysterious stranger walks into his life and things start looking up. Their passionate and intense relationship triggers a string of inexplicable events, as if an obscure power was taking control of his life. Academy Award®-nominated Kristin Scott Thomas and Academy Award®-nominated Ethan Hawke join dramatic forces in Pawel Pawlikowski’s hypnotic thriller, THE WOMAN IN THE FIFTH. Adapted from the New York Times best-selling author Douglas Kennedy’s 2011 novel, Pawlikowski’s genre-defying film follows a complicated, conflicted and ambiguous hero as his world spirals out of control. Joanna Kulig and Samir Guesmi also star.
