Summary:
"Named the best French film of 2016 by the César Awards, Fatima is a brilliant and moving tale about what it means to be an immigrant today. It was inspired by the life of North African poet Fatima Elayoubi, who immigrated knowing little French and slowly taught herself the language. Fatima (Soria Zeroual) lives with her two teenage daughters in Lyon, and works cleaning jobs to pay their way through school. She is a woman pressured by her children and her neighbors alike to assimilate into a culture of which she's wary. Fatima is a complex, uplifting film that is one of recent French cinema's most trenchant and memorable portraits of the contemporary immigrant experience"--Container.
