On the first day of summer, Claire Darling (Catherine Deneuve) has decided to rid herself of her entire estate. She’s laid down all her favorite objects on her front lawn for one splendid garage sale. As a horde of curious bystanders and neighbors fight over the ridiculously underpriced antiques, each object resurrects flashes of Claire Darling’s tragic and flamboyant life. Alerted by her childhood friends, Marie Darling (Chiara Mastroianni), Claire’s estranged daughter, is forced to come back to the family mansion to stop this sale and unveil the reasons behind her mother’s eccentric decision.
The third feature-length fiction film from Julie Bertuccelli (Since Otar Left, The Tree), CLAIRE DARLING premiered in the Women in Cinema program at the Chicago International Film Festival and is adapted from Lynda Rutledge's 2013 debut novel Faith Bass Darling’s Last Garage Sale.
