Claire Walker Vause,
In morte veritas. Georgia Byrd clerks at a New Orleans department store. She defers pleasure: cooks gourmet meals, eats Lean Cuisine; likes a co-worker in silence; has savings, but hasn't left Louisiana. All that changes when a CT Scan discloses she has three weeks to live. She cashes her savings and heads to Europe's Grandhotel Pupp, where Chef Didier presides. She checks into the Presidential Suite, orders everything on the menu, snowboards, and comes to the attention of the chef and the hotel's powerful American guests: a Congressman, a Senator, a retail magnate, and his mistress. She has nothing to lose, so she tells them what she thinks. Will the truth set them free?Written by
When Sean is standing on the ledge with Georgia and Mr. Kragen, his position changes between shots. Sometimes his elbow is propped on the window sill; sometimes his arms are down at his side. See more »
Where are you going?
Well, first I'm going to go find Georgia, and then I'm gonna go back to school and I'm gonna get my business degree. And then one day, when your wife finally decides to divorce you and takes half of everything you have, I'll only be too happy to help her figure out exactly how much that should be.

This is a good romantic comedy, a "feel good movie" (a remake of "Last Holiday" with Alec Guinness from Ealing Studios in 1950), highly recommended for those who want to see a movie about how you can crab every day of your life to make it a great experience. With a predictable plot (how many times we have seen this idea at the past?) but very sincere and enjoyable (althought we hope we 'll see something more interesting from the director of the "Joy LucK Club" and "Smoke" in near future). With good performances from Queen Latifah, Timothy Hutton and an especially amusement cameo from Gerard Depardieu. P.S. Including some very exciting recipes at the end...
