Written by Eva Ionesco and Simon Liberati, the story revolves around Rose, a 16-year-old girl who was abandoned by her parents and taken in by social services, and her fiancé, 22-year-old Michel, who are enjoying their first great and innocent love affair in Paris in 1979, at the height of the popularity of the Le Palace nightclub. They are part of the trendy bunch who only live for partying and exuberance. At a party one evening, they meet Lucille and Hubert, a couple of fifty-something middle-class bohemians, who will take them under their wing and turn their lives upside down.

Produced by Marie-Jeanne Pascal and Mélissa Toscan du Plantier for Macassar ProductionsUne jeunesse dorée is being co-produced by NJJ Entertainment and Belgian outfit Scope Pictures. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature has also secured support from the CNC’s advance on receipts. The shoot will take place over seven weeks, with Agnès Godard (nominated four times for the César Award between 1999 and 2009, winning it in 2001) serving as DoP, while the score will be composed by Bertrand Burgalat. The French distribution will be handled by KMBO, and Be For Films is in charge of the international sales.
