Paris Can Wait — Trailer


added: Fri, Mar 24th '17

Diane Lane enjoys a leisurely drive through the gorgeous French countryside in the trailer for the old-fashioned romantic road-trip film "Paris Can Wait."

Lane plays the wife of a big-shot American film producer (played by Alec Baldwin), who finds herself taking a two-day car trip to Paris with one of her husband's French business associates (played by French actor/filmmaker Arnaud Viard). When she is unexpectedly asked "are you happy," Lane's character is not only compelled to reevaluate her marriage with her husband but her life as well.

"Paris Can Wait" is the first narrative feature from 80-year-old documentarian Eleanor Coppola, perhaps best known for filming all the behind-the-scenes footage featured in "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse," the 1991 award-winning documentary about the troubled production of her husband, Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 masterpiece "Apocalypse Now."

Also written by Eleanor Coppola, who also produced alongside Oscar-winner producer and Francis Ford's longtime producing partner Fred Roos, "Paris Can Wait" premiered to positive notices at last year's Toronto International Film Festival. The film is now slated to open in select theaters on May 12th.

Anne is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successful, driven but inattentive movie producer, she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband. 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.
