Paris Can Wait written, produced, and directed by Eleanor Coppola (USA) 2016 is a Francophiles delight.
While this feature film is presented as narrative fiction, it’s based on an incident experienced by its creator a few years ago.
Anne is the wife of a successful American, film director who spends most of his waking hours in Cannes talking on his mobile phone about business. Their vacation is cut short by the necessity for him to visit the location of his next film.
Since Anne is still suffering from a painful ear infection, she’s advised not to fly with him. Her husband’s French producer offers to drive her to Paris, where she and her husband have an apartment.
The seven-hour drive becomes a two-day adventure.
Jacque is not a very good driver, but he takes every opportunity to indulge in some of the best food and wine of the regions he traverses.
Paris Can Wait screens Monday 10 April 2017 at the San Francisco International Film Festival before opening in theaters 12 May 2017 in New York and Los Angeles.
