Sacramento French Film Festival, Friday, June 16, 7 p.m., Crest Theatre and Esquire IMAX, $11-$75
If you’re looking to get more cultured in Trump’s America, what’s more open-minded than seeing a French film that not-so-subtly bashes Marin Le Pen and the Front National? Last month’s French presidential election is the subtext for This Is Our Land (Chez Nous), where a struggling nurse gets recruited as a mayoral candidate by the RNP, the film’s fictional nationalist party. It’s one of 17 stateside premieres at the 16th Annual Sacramento French Film Festival, which this year showcases films in a mix of genres, like dramas and comedies, and where women play prominent roles. The festival runs from June 16 to June 25, with a reception and closing party on either night. 1013 K Street; 1211 K Street; www.sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org.
