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.

Although probably I have seen very few of the works of Diane Lane, the few ones I have seen were very enjoyable for me (Under the Tuscan sun, for example). And well, in spite of it, it had been a long time since I saw her in a role that wasn't Martha Kent, and it was very joyful to see her back to her roots in 'Paris can wait'.
It has a very unique premise, well executed in a Woody Allen fashion that keeps the things interesting. The script was very cool and funny. The performances were perfectly descent and Diane and Arnaud looked pretty well together. The locations and the food (oh my God, the food) and all the settings of France, along with their photography, were awesome too.
Worth to watch, especially if you like the fine food and to travel like me. And also, if you are a fan of Diane Lane and of Woody Allen's style, believe me, you won't be disappointed with this one at all.
Thanks for reading!
