About

The youngest of a hardworking French-Canadian couple's 14 children is propelled to global music superstardom in Aline, a fictional musical dramedy freely inspired by the life of Celine Dion, written by, directed by and starring two-time César Award winner Valérie Lemercier.
For Aline Dieu, nothing in the world matters more than music, family and love. Her powerful and emotional voice captivates everyone who hears it, including successful manager Guy-Claude Kamar, who resolves to do everything in his power to make her a star. As Aline climbs from local phenomenon to best-selling recording artist to international superstar, she embarks on the two great romances of her life: one with the decades-older Guy-Claude and the other with her adoring audiences.

Reviews

  • "Lemercier tells the Celine Dion story from the age of 5 to 50, taking the audience on the exceptional journey of the youngest of 14 children of a Quebecois butcher and his homemaker-wife..."
    - NDTV
  • "As such it seems guaranteed to do the business at the box office, but it feels like a lost opportunity to either dig down deeper into the soul of a pop star, or to break out a few more laughs by ripening the portrayal."
    - The Daily Beast
  • "The film accesses what lies at the heart of Dion as a public figure: she's a bit of a weirdo, goofy and corny and gaudy and fabulous."
    - Vanity Fair
