You will have the opportunity to see Just To Be Sure (Ôtez-moi d’un doute):

The question at the heart of the film by writer-director Carine Tardieu is: you can’t choose who your parents are – or can you?

Out of the conundrum the director turns in a the sharp and funny comedy about two interconnected stories, as a widowed father discovers that his own dad may not be his biological one, while learning that his budding love interest may actually be his sister. It’s as light-hearted as its subject matter is deadly serious. Featuring an excellent cast lead by François Damiens and Cécile de France.
