From acclaimed French director Oliver Assayes, and featuring performances from sone of the brightest stars in French cinema today, Summer Hours is an insightful story of one middle class French family coming to terms with the loss of their mother, the disappearance of their childhood memories, and the challenge of sibling differences.

Left to come to terms with themselves and their differences, Adrienne (Juliette Binoche) a successful New York designer, Frédéric (Charles Berling) an economist and university professor in Paris, and Jérémie (Jérémie Renier) a dynamic businessman in China, confront the end of childhood, their shared memories, background and unique vision of the future.
