Read Time:1 Minute, 32 Second

When I hear the name Julie Delpy, two things come to mind immediately, great actress and the “Before” series. The French born actress made her acting debut in Jean-Luc Godard’s Detective, that should give you an idea of the caliber of performer Delpy is.

Her latest film the thriller The Lesson. I had a chance to speak to Julie Delpy about the film and she shared her thoughts and experiences, including on the topic of modern romantic movies.


Been a longtime admirer of Julie Delpy’s work. I think she’s a true actor at the core. Her “Before” franchise arguably is the best romantic movie franchise ever. I love her authenticity. She’s candid and a straight shooter. I appreciate people with that character. She’s smart and in-tune with herself.

It was interesting to hear her speak about stress and how it affected her and how she learned to deal with it. Who would have thought a veteran accomplished actor like herself would stress about her films? She had some wise words to share in regards to her self-discovery in regards to stress.

I had to ask her about romantic movies. I associate her with some of the best ones. Modern romantic comedies and dramas are a far cry to films of that genre in the past. Julie had some candid thoughts on modern romantic films. I agreed with her assessment. I also give her credit for calling out the lackluster attempt at scripts for that genre and her turning them down. Basically her message is be better and try harder.

Julie steals the show again in The Lesson, which is a slow-burning thriller with a twisted ending. I enjoyed her role and performance in it.

THE LESSON releases in Theaters on July 7
