Anne is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successful, driven but inattentive movie producer, she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
It's great to see Eleanor Coppola directing her feature debut and talking about the love life of women after 40, plus Diane Lane was actually pretty good and the locations were astounding, but that sleazy french guy was so exagerated that it just threw me off. At times it felt a bit unconfortable for these post-Weinstein days.
Cute, indeed. Truly beautiful landscapes and pretty neat cinematography. The storytelling has no intelectual pretense and that actually lifts the narrative. The performance of Diane Lane is impeccable. She's radiant.
I actually really liked this film. I lived vicarously through their roadtrip. And it made me want to cook - or rather improve my cooking! Diane Lane's wardrobe is to die for and the scenery is outstanding - obviously.
