She sent us five films she loves and recommends from the editing room.

TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, James L. Brooks, 1983

I love the movies of James L. Brooks because he risks showing cruel characters, capable of horrible things, while making them worthy of our sympathy.

DÉSIRÉ, Sacha Guitry, 1937

You also have to watch My Father Was Right. I discovered all of his movies not so long ago.

PROJECT NIM, James Marsh, 2011

An incredible film on the experience a man has made with a chimpanzee.

CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS, François Truffaut, 1983

The only film by Truffaut that I like. But this one I love!

GONE GIRL, David Fincher, 2014

The best film I've seen in theaters in the past two years.
