Joining the ranks of many renowned filmmakers to tackle the story of Joan of Arc, Bruno Dumont (director of Quad premiere Slack Bay) opts to focus on Joan’s adolescence — with a wild stylistic twist. No stodgy historical biopic, Jeannette takes the form of a heavy metal musical to tell the story of the famed young 15th-century shepherdess encountering her destiny. The result is a true tour de force, one of the most original cinematic experiences in years.
