Saturday, Dec. 22: 2 p.m., Little Theater
In A Christmas Tale (Un conte de Noël), Catherine Deneuve is the matriarch of the troubled Vuillard family, who come together at Christmas after she learns she needs a bone marrow transplant from a blood relative. That simple family reunion setup, however, can't begin to describe the unpredictable, emotionally volatile experience of this film, an inventive, magical drama that's equal parts merriment and melancholy.
Families on Film is a collaboration of the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film.
Tickets are $5 for Museum members, $7 for nonmembers.
