ANGELIKA’S NOTE

From Director Azazel Jacobs (THE LOVERS, TERRI), FRENCH EXIT follows a widowed New York socialite and her aimless son move to Paris after she spends the last of her husband's inheritance.

InSessionFilm.com raves, "With elegance, quirkiness, and sardonic humor, this happens to be a beautiful love story between mother and son that find each other and never let go."

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. 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.
