Noémie Merlant (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) stars as Jeanne, a quiet young woman who lives at home with her mother (Emmanuelle Bercot), in a small town. 

While her mother, who, filled with innuendo and sexual honesty, encourages her to meet a young man, the shy Jeanne is more interested in her job at the local amusement park. Until she sees Jumbo, a new and spectacular ride at the park. From there, a whole new kind of love story emerges which despite its unusual interplay is told with great depth and warmth.

A true outsider’s tale, filled with beautiful images and driven by a suitably off-beat performance from Noémie Merlant, Zoe Wittock’s award winning feature debut Jumbo is a pitch perfect film about the magic of love. 

“Jumbo makes a claim for people to enjoy love wherever they find it.” – Screen Daily

Screens with the short film Barnacle Face.
