Eleanor Coppola, (Francis Ford Coppola’s wife) at age 81 makes her narrative directorial and screenwriting debut. The film stars Diane Lane as a Hollywood producer’s wife, who unexpectedly takes a road trip from Cannes to Paris. Her neglectful, movie producer husband, (Alec Baldwin) flies ahead as she drives with a business associate played by (Arnaud Viard). The seven-hour trip turns out to be a couple of days filled with amazing French food and wine.
Bottom Line? I enjoyed the slow pacing the stunning cinematography and the culinary delights. As one film critic has stated, “Gee I think I gained 10 pounds just by watching this movie!”
