Le Mirage (The Mirage)

Director: Ricardo Trogi Year: 2015 Run Time: 101min

Patrick (Morisette) is 40-ish, and while he seems to be the perfect picture of success – a solid marriage, two beautiful kids and a successful business – things aren’t as idyllic as they seem. Actually stuck in an unhappy marriage, frustrated at work and constantly running around after the kids, Patrick is miserable and seeks refuge in adult videos and fantasies about his wife’s gorgeous friend.

Is it frustration with our consumerist society or a midlife crisis? This darkly funny satire of suburban life gone awry examines society’s obsession with attaining more “stuff”, and serves as a reminder that the “good life” can’t be purchased.
