A devastated Martin tries to move on with his life. But how can he escape his failure, especially when it's the most famous film series in the world?  Foenkinos's smash-hit Second Best is a playful, poignant story about fate, loss and how the lives we wish we'd led might not be all they're cracked up to be . . .
