"A film worth savoring: a celebration of food, wine and stopping to smell the roses...charming, soulful and wise." — Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

"I feel as if I gained 20 pounds while vicariously indulging in the gastronomic pleasures of PARIS CAN WAIT...Lane, still an incandescent knockout at 52, continues to pull off expressing sensuality and sexiness better than most actresses of any age." — Susan Wloszczyna, RogerEbert.com

Best-known for the classic documentary HEARTS OF DARKNESS and her membership in one of filmdom's most famous families, Eleanor Coppola set out at age 80 to make her first fictional feature, a lovely and leisurely road movie with romantic and autobiographical undertones. Based loosely on an incident in Coppola's own life, PARIS CAN WAIT stars perfectly cast Diane Lane as Anne, the neglected wife of a work-consumed Hollywood producer (Baldwin). When an earache prevents her from joining him on a Cannes-to-Paris flight, he suggests she go by car with his business partner Jacques (character actor Viard). The trip should take only a few hours, but the charming Jacques takes the long way round, and Paris waits while he introduces Anne to the scenic and gastronomic glories of Southern France. Is he a con-artist interested only in her money? Or in something else? And, if so, will she take the plunge? In English and French with English subtitles. DCP digital. (MR)
