NOMINEE · DRAMATIC GRAND JURY PRIZE · SUNDANCE

Fresh from her breakout role in Portrait of a Lady on Fire (SWIFF’20) Noémie Merlant shines in this offbeat romance between woman and machine.


Jeanne, a late 20’s misfit living with her uninhibited single mother Margarette, prefers the company of gadgets over people. At her mother’s request she picks up a graveyard shift cleaning gig at her local amusement park. There she meets the park's newest attraction and is instantly enamoured with his blinking lights and rotund form, affectionately naming him "Jumbo".

Loosely based on real life cases of objectophilia, in which people fall in love with inanimate objects, Jumbo is a riveting, vibrant, and often hilarious ride exploring the uniquely human ability to find soul in the most unlikely places.

“Merlant approaches the obscure object of Jeanne’s desire with the same tactile intensity that she previously used on Adèle Haenel in “Portrait of a Lady on Fire.” – Indiewire
