A Paper Wedding ★★★ Les Noces de Papier 1989

A middle-aged literature professor with a dead-end career and equally dead-end romance with a married man is persuaded by her lawyer sister to marry a Chilean political refugee to avoid his deportation. Of course, they must fool an immigration official and their fake marriage does turn into romance, but this is no light-hearted “Green Card.” Bujold shines. In French and Spanish with English subtitles. 90m/C VHS, DVD . CA Genevieve Bujold, Manuel Aranguiz, Dorothee Berryman; D: Michel Brault; C: Sylvain Brault.
