As part of the Princeton French Film Festival, you’re invited to the family-friendly pick movie screening of Little Nicholas. Happy As Can Be (French: Le Petit Nicolas. Qu’est-ce qu’on attend pour être heureux) (2022) by Amandine Fredon and Benjamin Massoubre.

Somewhere between Paris’ famous neighborhoods Montmartre and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Jean-Jacques Sempé and René Goscinny lean over a large white sheet of paper and bring to life a mischievous and endearing boy, Le Petit Nicolas. From schoolyard games and fights to summer camp prank and camaraderie, Nicolas lives a merry and enriching childhood. As the adventures of Nicolas and his friends unfold, the boy makes his way into his creators’ workshop and light-heartedly questions them. Sempé and Goscinny will recount the story of their friendship, career, and reveal a childhood filled with hopes and dreams.

Free and open to everyone upon registration, this screening will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 11:00 AM (doors open at 10:45 AM) at the Princeton Public Library (1st floor, Community Room) in its original language (French) with English subtitles.

Organized in partnership with the Princeton Public Library
