During our temporary closure, we're excited to bring you opportunities to watch new release titles on your home screen while directly supporting Amherst Cinema. When you watch these Virtual Cinema films at home, the cost of the digital "ticket" is split between the film distributor and Amherst Cinema—just like with a ticket purchased at our box office.


In this black comedy of middle-aged masculinity gone awry, Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (THE ARTIST) is a recent divorcee who becomes obsessed with a vintage fringed deerskin jacket that begins to exert an uncanny hold on him.

In a sleepy French alpine village, he falls into the guise of an independent filmmaker and befriends a trusting bartender and aspiring editor (Adèle Haenel, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE) who becomes his collaborator on a movie that will document a surprising new goal he sets himself.


"A loopy entertaining WTF lark... The fact that it holds you, for 77 minutes, is a testament to the debauched rigor of Dupieux’s filmmaking." Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
