Southern California Premiere

Rolling off HIPPOCRATES, doctor-turned-filmmaker Thomas Lilti delves once again into the medical world with THE COUNTRY DOCTOR. The social dramedy stars Francois Cluzet (“Intouchables”, “Tell No One’) as a devoted and revered countryside doctor whose life gets rocked by a middle-age woman who has come from the city hospital to earn her chops. Challenging each other with opposite views on medicine, the pair eventually bond and learn from one another.
