Philippe Garrel’s In the Shadow of Women, the Virginia Film Festival’s third installment of its year-round series, portrays work, home and love lives colliding. The veteran French new wave film director uses stark black-and-white cinematography to contrast a male versus female perspective on the dissolution of a marriage wrecked by mutual infidelity. Exploring the gray areas, Garrel eeks out nuances of emotional devastation in his main characters while remaining unbiased.

Tuesday 5/24. VFF at Violet Crown Cinema, 200 W. Main St., Downtown Mall. 529-3000.
