When they come to bonafide modern cinema legends they don’t get bigger than Michelle Pfeiffer, and now this veteran performer is ready to take audiences on a hilarious ride with sharp comedy-drama French Exit.
Check out the full trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
“My plan was to die before the money ran out,” says 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price (Michelle Pfeiffer), but things didn’t go as planned.
Her husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years and with his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris, accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm (Lucas Hedges) and a cat named Small Frank—who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’s dead husband.
As a woman who is desperate to keep up appearances, Pfeiffer’s Frances Price is incredibly sharp and tactile as the former socialite, and this makes for plenty of hilarity as she starts to let her guard down in a new city and new locale.
With its terrific handling of dry humour and interesting point-of-view when it comes to reframing your life, French Exit makes for a sweet little treat for audiences.
French Exit will arrive in cinemas on March 18.
