Paris Can Wait Trailer

"Let's pretend we don't know where we are going, or even who we are." Sony Pictures Classics is releasing this indie drama in theaters this May, so we're featuring the trailer before the summer movie season kicks off. Paris Can Wait is the feature directorial debut of Eleanor Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola's wife, now making her debut at the age of 81. Diane Lane stars as a woman married to a Hollywood producer who, after a visit to Cannes, takes a long road trip through France with one of her husband's business partners. Alec Baldwin stars as her producer husband, and Arnaud Viard plays the man she goes on the road trip with. Along the way, she finds happiness and a love for life again in everything from the food to the sights and the conversations. This looks like a light, charming film to remind you how great it is to see the world.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Eleanor Coppola's Paris Can Wait, direct from YouTube:

Paris Can Wait Poster

Eleanor Coppola's feature film directorial and screenwriting debut at the age of 81 stars Academy Award nominee Diane Lane as a Hollywood producer's wife who unexpectedly takes a trip through France, which reawakens her sense of self and her joie de vivre. Anne (Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successfully driven but inattentive movie producer (Baldwin), she finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband (Viard). What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a journey of discovery involving fine food and wine, humor, wisdom, and picturesque sights. Paris Can Wait is written and directed by Eleanor Coppola, who's also Francis Ford Coppola's wife, making her feature directorial debut. This first premiered at the Toronto and Mill Valley Film Festivals last fall. It also played at this year's SXSW. Sony Classics will open Paris Can Wait in select theaters starting on May 12th.

Sounds like Eat, Eat and Eat. French people are obsessed with food.

Each time I see Diane Lane, the "hall" scene from unfaithful comes to my mind and overwhelms my reason.

You don't remember this scene? This is all I can remember of this movie. ;D It was borderline hardcore porn. Truly.

;D This is weird. Especially when it hits someone reasonable and sensible like you. Maybe you've used some word that is blacklisted on Disqus filter. Go figure. Hopefully it's just a temporary bug.

I pretty much agree what you said about that film. But, as for this 'Orwellian process'. You don't have to agree with the following, but it needs to be said. Well, it does happen to me sometimes here (that Orwellian thing), not often, but it does. Nothing I can do about it. Just being some East European guy, what can I do; right? I guess, talking about films shouldn't allow abandoning some liberal dogma that there's nothing historical, political or ideological about the film. But there is and it should be discussed. Especially when it comes to, for example, American films which a lot of Europeans consider as an ideology of American way of thinking (which is very often wrong). And not only when one mentions some dictator in history. Mr. Billington obviously is also that guy here, he can't but believe that films are only neutral domain of culture. They are not, they are business and politics. At least. And in so many ways very much involved in people's ideas and beliefs, historical and political and not only aesthetic or creative. As for the age of Nazism, it should be said that film in Nazi Germany was considered as a primary tool of manipulation. Ministry of propaganda clearly stated that. In many ways, films are also that today but fueled with better ideas and creative (sometimes more and sometimes less) concepts . But luckily, some of us are mostly looking for art and something more progressive in it ... Cheers.

You obviously know more about her (the director) than I do, but you also described all that I imagined in this film. It is still interesting, for me, how it plays with those cultural American-European differences (in some converging sense). Yeah, it could be very good ...

There is something magically special about seeing legacy actors do a one for them movie.
