Sidse Babett Knudsen,
Deneuve plays sassy grandmother Cathy who takes to the road after being betrayed by her lover and learning her business is on the verge of bankruptcy on the same day. During a week long odyssey across France, she spends time with a grandson she hardly knows and reconnects with her past as former Miss Brittany through a reunion for former beauty queens.Written by
Deneuve is magnificent. Story could have been tighter but it's a leisurely picaresque tale through the French countryside. It's great to see good roles for grandparents! Someone needed to strangle that daughter though!
