Against a backdrop of sex, politics and race, Anita reveals the intimate story of a woman who spoke truth to power. Directed by Academy Award-winner Freida Mock (Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision). Anita Hill courageously speaks openly and intimately for the first time about the obstacles she faced in simply telling the truth, and what happened to her life and work in the 22 years since.

"Part of the pleasure in watching The Best Offer is the elegant, unassumingly suspenseful way it unfolds. You never quite know where it’s all headed, in part because it never quite tells you what kind of movie it is. I called it a “romantic thriller,” but there’s a lot more movie here than that."
– Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
In this acclaimed erotic thriller, Frank (Pierre Deladonchamps) spends his summer days hopelessly searching for companionship at a popular cruising spot on the shores of a lake in rural France. His only friend there is Henri (Patrick D'Assumçao), an older married man who insists he comes to the lake for the views, not the men. One day, Frank meets Michel (Christophe Paou), an attractive yet darkly mysterious man and falls blindly in love. They quickly become lovers, yet something remains off about Michel. When a death occurs at the lake, Frank and Michel become the primary suspects but despite constant inquiries from the area's detective, they choose to ignore the danger and instead continue to engage in their passionate and potentially lethal relationship. Winner of the Queer Palm and Un Certain Regard Directing Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Written and directed by Alain Guiraudie. In French with subtitles. (Adults only, 97 mins)

"The film is a cat-and-mouse game in which each player thinks he’s the cat, making it both thrilling and disconcerting to watch. It is also a nature documentary about behavior at the very top of the imperial food chain and a detective story about the search for a mystery that is hidden in plain sight." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
