Sadrine Kiberlain had already been in movies for eight years when she was first recognized as an outstanding up-and-comer by the prestigious César Awards. That was for her role in "The Patriots", a thriller starring Yvan Attal as a French Jew who moves to Israel as a teenager and begins to spy on his home country. She's been a leading lady ever since; and, in "The Indecisive Guy", her follow-up to "The Patriots", Kiberlain met her personal leading man: Vincent Lindon, her future husband. She garnered acclaim again in Laetitia Masson's romance "En avoir (ou pas)", which was the next step in establishing her as a major actress, and worked with Masson again in the steamy "À vendre". In "Mademoiselle Chambon", she played the title role of a teacher who convinces the father of one of her pupils to volunteer at the school and becomes a temptation for him. She took a turn for the historical with "Beaumarchais the Scoundrel" and "A Self-Made Hero", and for the psychiatric in "Seventh Heaven" and "Alias Betty". However, Kiberlain--who is also a pop musician--continues to give lighthearted performances as well, as in "After You", in which she was a vertex in the love triangle formed by her, José Garcia, and Daniel Auteuil.
