Arnaud Desplechin was a French filmmaker who made waves throughout the international film community after the premiere of his eagerly-anticipated drama, "My Golden Years," at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. A native of Roubaix, France, Desplechin's long desire to make films led him to the University of Paris III: Sorbonne Nouvelle in the early 1980s. He earned his filmmaking degree in 1984, before making three highly-regarded short films based on the works of esteemed Belgian writer Jean Ray. Desplechin's feature film debut, 1992's "The Sentinel," premiered to wide acclaim at that year's Cannes Film Festival, and signaled the rise of an important up-and-coming French director. Desplechin made his first English language film in 2000, "Esther Kahn," and continued directing critically acclaimed films throughout the 2000s, including "Playing 'In the Company of Men'" (2003), "Kings & Queen" (2004), and "Jimmy P" (2013). In 2015 Desplechin directed "My Golden Years," which was a prequel to his 1996 drama, "My Sex Life or How I Got into an Argument." "My Golden Years" premiered to overwhelmingly positive praise at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, which only further cemented Desplechin's status as one of the most respected French filmmakers of his generation.
