Wild Lavender

Follow the story of Simone Fleurier in this whirlwind of a story that whisks you from Marseille to Paris, Berlin and eventually New York. Simone falls in love with the music hall, and dreams of becoming a famous dancer and singer, but the war threatens to change her life for ever.
Rolling through vivid landscapes and cities, “Wild Lavender” is a lovely slice of summer escapism, following Simone through the odd passionate romance and her rising stage career – which includes brushes with famous folk like Picasso and eventually the grand master of the stage himself, Ziegfeld.
