Director Lucas Belvaux brings to the screen a fictionalized portrayal of French politics reminiscent of Marine Le Pen and her far right-wing party, with its nationalist and anti-immigrant platform.

An attractive working-class single mother in the North of France who naively agrees to run for mayor, representing the Patriotic Bloc. With the help of a charming André Dussollier as the town’s esteemed physician, the Populists’ rhetoric seizes control of the minds of the electorate. Catherine Jacob is the blonde-bobbed leader who never met an angry crowd she couldn’t make angrier.
