Harvey Keitel, Toni Collette, Rossy de Palma and Stanislas Mehrar have joined the cast of French director Amanda Sthers’s English-language debut Madame, a comedy-drama revolving around a housemaid asked to masquerade as a wealthy heiress by her employees.
The feature - produced by Paris-based Lgm in partnership with Studiocanal - will shoot in Paris for six weeks from today (July 20).
Collette and Keitel play wealthy American couple Anne and Bob who have recently set up home in Paris and decide to give a high-class dinner for a dozen distinguished diners.
The last-minute arrival of Bob’s son from his first marriage suddenly takes the number of guests to 13. The superstitious Anne asks housemaid Maria (played by de Palma) to change her uniform and pretend to be a wealthy Spanish friend.

Marking his return to the female-centric dramas with which the director made his name, Pedro Almodóvar stopped by Cannes Film Festival with Julieta. Adapted from a series of short stories of Canadian Nobel prize-winning author Alice Munro, the story follows a woman who recalls the pivotal moments of her adult life. We said in our positive review from the festival, “It’s charmingly self-aware in its use of kitsch and melodrama — almost to the point of self-parody — and, while small in scope, it’s also one of his lusher and leaner offerings.”
While at the festival, we got the opportunity to speak with Emma Suarez, who plays the older version of Julieta. We discussed shooting chronologically, only meeting her co-star once on set, the wide range of inspirations for the film, what the film means to her, and much more. Check out the conversation below and our interview with Adriana Ugarte here. »
