Lila has just broken up with her cheating boyfriend and is disappointed, frustrated and hurt. Looking for love and intimacy, she engages in a series of short-term relationships, while her friends offer up bad advice and her ex tries to win her back. In her directorial debut, renowned actress Hafsia Herzi crafts an empathic and unmistakably French character study defined by a decidedly female gaze. YOU DESERVE A LOVER is a remarkably wise and perceptive film about relationships, sex and love.
Hafsia Herzi (France) YOU DESERVE A LOVER is Herzi’s first feature film as a director.
