Knickerbocker Theatre to Present “The Unknown Girl”

The Hope College Knickerbocker Theatre’s Fall Film Series continues with the Belgian- French drama film “The Unknown Girl” on Monday-Saturday, Nov. 6-11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland.

poster“The Unknown Girl” follows Jenny (Adele Haenel), a young doctor who leaves her clinic’s door unanswered, only to find out that the African woman found dead shortly after was the one who was ringing the doorbell. Driven by guilt and redemption, Jenny sets out to learn the woman’s identity and see to it that she is not forgotten. The film is in French with English subtitles.

“The Unknown Girl” is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale encompassing “no end of guilt, and just enough grace,” as said by the New York Times.
