Maggie Smith and Kevin Kline are set to star in Protagonist Pictures' dramatic comedy "My Old Lady" which marks the directorial debut of prolific playwright and screenwriter Israel Horovitz ("Author! Author!").
Horovitz also wrote the play that inspired the film. Kline plays a down-and-out New Yorker who travels to Paris to liquidate a valuable apartment he inherited from his estranged father.
Once he arrives, he discovers a refined old lady (Smith) living in the apartment with her daughter (Jane Birkin). His plans are thwarted when he discovers that due to French law, he will not actually get possession of the apartment until the woman dies.

The French film industry has always been among the worlds most important……at least to film studies professors. Most French movies are either funded by the French government or made with the support of government-linked media companies. Filmmakers face little market pressure in the creative process. That helps explain why they’re so boring!
Starbuck opens this weekend so we here at We Are Movie Geeks have decided to post this article about our favorite French films. Okay, so Starbuck is technically a Canadian film shot in Quebec, but its French language so, in our eyes that makes it French! The Hollywood remake is already in the can. It stars Vince Vaughn. The remake was originally tilted Dickie Donor but they’ve changed it to Delivery Man, so you just know they’ve screwed it up bad. This list may not line up with that of your typical French Cinema scholar. »

There was definitely some nervous apprehension on my part before meeting Winona Ryder -- which, having done this sort of thing hundreds of times before, doesn't happen often. This most likely stems from my preexisting notion that she's shy or reserved -- or, at the very least, media shy and reserved in front of the press. Soon after meeting the petite actor -- who still doesn't look all that different from the person who danced to Harry Belafonte's "Jump in the Line" at the end of "Beetlejuice" -- I discovered something that would have put my nervous mind at ease: Winona Ryder is, well ... a bit of a nerd.
Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but she is a fan of the original "Star Trek" television series and used to have a life-size poster of Ellen Ripley on her wall.
Ryder's new movie is "The Iceman," the latest »

"If you figure a way to live without serving a master, any master, then let the rest of us know, will you? For you'd be the first person in the history of the world." – Philip Seymour Hoffman, 'The Master'
Greetings from the apocalypse! This week finds me once again walking down memory lane as I recall two new movies I visited the sets of and, as usual, childhood traumas. Do those traumas involve giants? Do I seek the therapy I so desperately need? Read on …

Okay, so in case you haven't heard already, "21 and Over" is basically the same movie as "The Hangover," as evidenced by our informative chart. I had the honor of touring the set of this raunchy sex/alcohol poisoning comedy in Seattle around 2011 or so (I can't quite remember for some reason) and got to watch Justin Chon ride a mechanical buffalo while projectile vomiting. »
