In the 15th century, both France and England stake a blood claim for the French throne. Believing that God had chosen her, the young Joan leads the army of the King of France. When she is captured, the Church sends her for trial on charges of heresy. Refusing to accept the accusations, the graceful Joan of Arc will stay true to her mission. Bruno Dumont’s decision to work with a ten-year-old actress re-injects this heroine’s timeless cause and ideology with a modernity that highlights both the tragic female condition and the incredible fervor, strength and freedom women show when shackled by societies and archaic virile orders that belittle and alienate them.

And while this story is nowhere near the realm of “Game of Thrones,” it’s difficult to watch Prudhomme deliver such strong, intense lines without being reminded of the HBO series’ use of actress Bella Ramsey as Lady Lyanna Mormont, in a similar capacity. That is to say, it’s pretty great.

“Joan of Arc” will premiere as part of the Un Certain Regard section of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, which begins on May 14.
