Corinne, the ultimate extrovert, convinces her shy but extremely talented home baker best friend Jane to commit to a year of baking cakes and bringing them to bars, with the goal of meeting people and developing confidence–also known as “cakebarring.” During their year of “cakebarring,” Corinne receives a life-altering diagnosis, and the pair face a challenge unlike anything they’ve experienced before.

Sentinelle – September 8

French comedy-drama Sentinelle is the story of François Sentinelle (Jonathan Cohen) who leads a double life. During the day, he is the most media-exposed cop on the Island of Réunion, known for his tough methods and floral shirts, chasing criminals in his famous yellow Defender. But outside of working hours (and often during them), Sentinelle has another profession: that of a variety singer. For the past fifteen years, he has been trying and failing to regain success by preparing a new album. However, Sentinelle doesn’t want to choose between his duty as a police officer and his love for music anymore. While he remains busy with his concerts and the release of his album, a wave of violent crimes shakes the island. But Sentinelle, completely absorbed in his music, doesn’t really have the inclination to investigate.
