Sonia Bergerac’s life is falling apart. The instructor at a school for troubled children’s husband has left her without explanation, there’s tension at work — particularly over the school’s no-skirt policy — and she’s careening toward breakdown. Her troubles come to a head when she finds a gun in one of her pupil’s bags and seizes it, accidentally firing a shot into a student’s leg. Her mistake balloons into a full-blown hostage crisis in "La Journée de la Jupe" ("Skirt Day,") for which actress Isabelle Adjani was nominated for "Best Actress" in the 2010 César Awards. In French with English subtitles. 7:05 p.m. Miami Dade College Tower Theater, 1508 SW Eighth St., Miami. $6. Details: (305) 643-8706 or www.mdc.edu/culture/tower.htm.
