Go behind the scenes of "Suite Francaise," the wartime romantic drama that stars Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts, with a couple of newly-released featurettes, which shows off some extensive making-of footage, including interviews with the cast and snippets from the movie.

Set in Nazi-occupied France and centering on a forbidden courtship between a French woman (Williams) and an embedded German officer (Schoenaerts), the film is based on the WWII novel by Irene Nemirovsky, a 39-year-old French-Jewish writer who was killed in Auschwitz in 1942 more than half a century before her unfinished manuscript was re-discovered by family members and then posthumously published in 2004.

Directed by English helmer Saul Dibb (The Duchess), "Suite Francaise" boasts a top-notch supporting cast that includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Margot Robbie, Ruth Wilson, Sam Riley, Alexandra Maria Lara and Lambert Wilson.

The film opens in select theaters on July 3rd.

France, 1940. In the first days of occupation, beautiful Lucile Angellier (Michelle Williams) is trapped in a stifled existence with her controlling mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) as they both await news of her husband: a prisoner of war. Parisian refugees start to pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers' own homes. Lucile initially tries to ignore Bruno von Falk (Matthias Schoenaerts), the handsome and refined German officer staying with them. But soon, a powerful love draws them together and leads them into the tragedy of war.
