French Film Sneak Preview: “Paris Can Wait”

Bonjour France friends,

We have a fun event to propose coming up next week. French Affaires has been invited by Sony Pictures Classics to attend the free advance screening of PARIS CAN WAIT in Dallas, Texas, on Monday, May 1. “Paris Can Wait” is a new romantic comedy starring Diane Lane on her food, wine and love adventures throughout France. The screening will take place at the Dallas Angelika Film Center at 7 PM. Again, this event is free and it’s open to all our readers so if you are anywhere near Dallas next Monday, please join us!

FILM SYNOPSIS: Anne (Diane Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Married to a successful but inattentive movie producer (Alec Baldwin), she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with her husband’s business associate (Arnaud Viard). What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a carefree two-day adventure replete with diversions involving picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humor, wisdom and romance, reawakening Anne’s senses and giving her a new lust for life.


Cast: Diane Lane, Alec Baldwin; Director: Eleanor Coppola (wife of director Francis Ford Coppola); Screenplay: Eleanor Coppola.
