How To Be A Good Wife

Narrative Features Feature Film

It’s 1967. Immaculate and morally upright Paulette Van Der Beck (Juliette Binoche) and her husband have been running “Van der Beck’s School Of Housekeeping And Good Manners” for over two decades, with the help of Paulette’s eccentric stepsister Gilberte and the school’s communist-fearing, ex-Resistance nun Marie-Therese. Their mission: train teenagers to become perfect housewives, in times when women were expected to be largely subservient.
