In January 1958, Yves Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney) - aged merely 21 - was unexpectedly called upon to oversee the legendary Paris fashion house established by recently deceased Christian Dior.

During Saint Laurent's breathtaking and groundbreaking show, he met with another fate in being introduced to Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), patron of the arts, future love of his life and lifelong business partner. Three years later, the two founded the Yves Saint Laurent Company, which would rapidly become one of the biggest luxury powerhouses on the planet.

Directed by Jalil Lespert with a screenplay by Lespert and Marrie-Pierre Huster, YVES SAINT LAURENT is at once a captivating story about the making of an icon and a testament to the power of enduring love.

Synopsis: 

Calvary's Priest is a good man, intent on making the world a better place. He is continually shocked and saddened by the spiteful and confrontational inhabitants of his small country town.
One day, his life is threatened during confession. He shrugs off the altercation, and continues to perform his pastoral duties, trying as best he can to help his parishioners, despite having a fragile daughter to contend with, and a fellow priest who may as well be an atheist for all the dedication he has to his calling.
Soon, however, the sinister and troubling undercurrents he has tried to ignore start to make their presence felt more keenly, and as the forces of darkness close in around him, he begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.
