Three grown siblings (Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, and Jérémie Renier) divide up the well-loved art collection of their late mother (elegant Edith Scob) in preparation for selling her country house. Summer Hours, director Olivier Assayas’ tender, sun-kissed, Chekhovian drama, brims with life and loveliness even as it meditates on the loss of childhood. The shimmering production, with its sophisticated appreciation of the objets accrued over a fortunate lifetime (and its perceptive examination of generational bonds), was conceived out of a project to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Paris’ Musée d’Orsay.
