When Claire (played by Lola Naymark) learns that she is five months pregnant at the age of seventeen, she decides to keep the baby and not to tell the father (who seems to be married). Instead, she quits her current job at a local supermarket and goes to work as an assistant for Madame Mélikian (Ariane Ascaride), an embroiderer for haute couture. Mélikian has just lost her only son in a motorcycle accident. Claire shows her willingness in taking her duties, as well as taking over Mélikian's private order when she is treated in the hospital.

  • Reception

    “Whether the action involves gutting a live eel or stitching opalescent sequins to gossamer cloth, the camera is deployed with wisdom”. Lisa Nesselson, Variety

    “A Common Thread is as delicate as the intricate needlework that both women are so passionate about”. Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile

    Set in the picturesque French countryside A Common Thread is a touching, thought-provoking drama about the bond that forms between two women. Lola Naymark illuminates the screen with her striking, flame-red curls and eye-catching performance.
