Marvin Clement (played with steely determination by Finnegan Oldfield) is the darling of the Paris stage. His autobiographical show that he stars in with Isabelle Huppert tells the story of his life. Moving back and forth in time we learn that Marvin came from a rural working class background and suffered under the brutish rule of his stepfather and his classmates who mercilessly bullied him for being gay. It isn’t until he is old enough to leave home and move to Paris that Marvin truly flourishes, firstly under the guidance of an older male lover and later through his mentorship with Isabelle Huppert.
Reinventing Marvin is a jubilant ode to reinvention and turning your pain into triumph.
