Nathalie lives a comfortable life with a stable job and a seemingly perfect family. Suddenly, great personal changes take place in her private life and a process of change starts, leading to her getting to know herself and life better.
Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert) teaches philosophy, and she lives and thinks like a philosopher. She and her husband have been married for 25 years, they have two children, and on the side she takes care of her sick mother. When her husband leaves her for another woman and her mother dies, it turns everything upside-down. Suddenly Nathalie has more freedom than ever before, and she has to reinvent herself.
Things to Come is Mia Hansen-Løve's first "adult" film, a break with the youth portrayals she was known for, and a film not about getting older, but being older. Critics hailed it as her best. It’s an intelligent and beautiful film, where the screenplay, acting and cinematography create a deep and heartwarming experience, a story for everyone who has had to face themselves and the life they have lived. Hansen-Løve won the Silver Bear for Best Director during the Berlin Film Festival.
