My Old Lady (2014)
That is the text. The subtext is about the devastating effect that secrets can have on whole families. Mathilde and Mathias' father had a long standing secret that they thought had no effect on those around them, but in fact it did. Very much so. The selfishness of Mathilde is so palpable, and is only surpassed by her smugness. It is well scripted, well acted and thought provoking.
