|Something in the Air (2012)
by Olivier Assayas
Set in the early 1970s, this bracing semi-autobiographical film resists easy nostalgia, focusing instead on the turbulence of one’s late teens and early twenties. A high-school student named Gilles was born too late to take part in the insurrections of May 1968 but is still consumed with revolutionary zeal.
