Movie Info

To hide her pregnancy, 17-year-old Claire (Lola Naymark) leaves her family and her supermarket job to work under seamstress Madame Mélikian (Ariane Ascaride). The practical arrangement -- Claire's assistance in exchange for an isolated place to make a living until her baby is adopted -- becomes something deeper: Creative Claire learns from experienced Mélikian, while the older woman's grief over losing her son is slowly assuaged by helping the young woman bring a child into the world.

Audience Reviews for Sequins

  • Jul 03, 2010
    A well done character study, this follows a young woman dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. Claire (Lola Naymark) hides her pregnancy from her friends and family as long as she can and even changes jobs to prevent discovery. The job change provides Claire with the sanctuary she needs to begin to come to grips with her situation and to sort out her options, even as she helps her new employer come to grips with her own tragedy. The young actress captivated this viewer. She is quite beautiful with the most luxurious head of red hair this viewer can remember seeing. But her ability to communicate her hidden emotions non-verbally was extraordinary. Ariane Ascaride played her employer, Madame Melikian, and brought a quiet dignity to the role of a mother dealing with the loss of a child. The supporting actors offered solid performances that fleshed out the story. Some lovely scenery and interesting camera work complete the package.
