France | 2011 | 113 minutes | Julie Delpy

It may be named after an 850-ton space station that famously spiraled out of control and hurtled back to Earth, but Le Skylab is a lightweight contraption that represents a confidently handled and shrewdly commercial fourth feature from writer-director-star Julie Delpy. Oscar-nominated for co-writing Richard Linklater's Before Sunset (2004), sometime singer-songwriter Delpy raids her own memories for this humorous family story.
