IN THE HOUSE, the latest feature film from director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, Potiche), explores the boundaries between truth and fantasy. Sixteen-year-old Claude (Ernst Unhauer) insinuates himself into the house of fellow high school student Rapha (Bastien Ughetto), writing about his family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction for his jaded literature teacher Germain (Fabrice Luchini, Paris, Molière). Intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events. Kristin Scott-Thomas (The English Patient, Gosford Park) plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary art gallery director who avidly follows Claude’s semi-imaginary escapades, while Emmanuelle Seigner (La Vie en Rose) plays Rapha’s mom, Claude’s object of desire.
