A double agent had enough of the danger and horrible terrorism she's making under orders in multiple countries,her breaking free was not easy ,and the people she thought she knew are far from what she expected.
Nadia El Gendy,
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.
Director Eleanor Coppola made her narrative feature debut with Paris Can Wait (2016) at the age of 80 years. However, she isn't the oldest person to direct a narrative first feature film: That distinction belongs to Japanese director Takeo Kimura, who was 90 when his narrative debut feature Yume no mani mani (2008) was released.

What a nice change to see a movie that is just a lovely little vignette in a mature woman's and man's lives, that was shot on location in one of our planet's beautiful countrysides, that contains mature sexual innuendo without gratuitous acts or nudity, that contains no profanity, that stars one of the most appealing actresses ever, the one and only Ms. Diane Lane, and that left me hoping for more movies like this one. Would have liked more of Alec Baldwin's humorous character -- one that suits Mr. Baldwin's comedic acting talents. Congratulations to Ms. Coppola for directing such a wonderful movie at age 80!
