We've covered the Janet Hubert/Will Smith/Fresh Prince of Bel Air controversy before, so I won't even bother rehashing. I think we are all somewhat familiar with the public battle between Janet Hubert, Will Smith and NBC, that led to the recasting of the role of Aunt Vivian, in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air's fourth season, in the mid-1990s, and all the drama that's since followed.

I posted this campaign in early January, so it's not clear to me if he launched a new one, or if this is the same exact campaign. It's end date is set for June 14, which would mean that it's a 5+ month campaign. I wasn't aware that you could set one up that was stretched out that much. Most are usually 30 to 45 days. Not 150 to 200 days.

The psychological thriller is titled Désordres (Chaos), and it stars Isaach De Bankolé and Sonia Rolland, as history professor Vincent and his wife Marie, who have just moved from Paris (with their son) to a farm near a small town in the south of France, looking forward to a quieter life. Marie, a retired renowned international pianist unwillingly follows her husband. However, their hopes for a serene escape is disrupted from the very beginning, when Thibaut, one of Vincent’s students (played by Niels Schneider), invades their family getaway, and slowly, but surely, the couple starts to come apart. The film is directed by Étienne Faure.
