Directed by Serge Bozon

Belgium, France 2017 95 mins. In French

Bozon’s (Tip Top, La France) latest, a wild adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s famed novel, stars Isabelle Huppert as Mrs. Géquil, a frustrated high school physics teacher who has cannot control her class of mostly immigrant pupils. When Géquil is violently electrocuted in her private laboratory, she is transformed into a new woman or two—one of which only comes out at night, glowing menacingly and setting things on fire left and right. But her role as teacher and mentor to her class provides a journey of self-growth, fueled by absurd situations and combative colleagues. Shot on 35mm and featuring a delightfully garish color palette, Mrs. Hyde is an offbeat film that “is clearly the opposite of realistic but which often manages to say more about the state of France and French or even Western society today than more documentary-like dramas.”—Boyd Van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
