Sony Pictures Classics has dropped a new trailer for French Exit.
“My plan was to die before the money ran out,” says 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price, but things didn’t go as planned. Her husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years and 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 and a cat named Small Frank—who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’s dead husband.
The surreal comedy is directed by Azazel Jacobs, and is based on the novel of the same name by Patrick deWitt, who also wrote the screenplay. As well as Michelle Pfeiffer, the film also stars Lucas Hedges, Tracy Letts and Imogen Poots.
French Exit is set for a limited release in the US on February 12th, with a UK release on February 26th, 2021.
