Michelle Pfeiffer Shines in Dark Comedy 'French Exit' at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on April 1st

Q&A immediately following with actors Michelle Pfeiffer, Lucas Hedges and Valerie Mahaffey.

A widowed New York socialite (Michelle Pfeiffer) and her aimless son (Lucas Hedges) move into a small, borrowed apartment in Paris with their cat after she spends the last of her husband's inheritance. The quirky comedy unites several disconnected, somewhat lonely American souls who come together in unique ways for a funny, sad, bittersweet, surreal and altogether different kind of film.

Pfeiffer shared, "I just fell in love with this writing and with this cast of oddball characters and this story. You never knew what was going to happen from one moment to the next. This woman, Frances, seeming kind of like she was from another time. And I also loved that she was just 100% herself all the time with her take-no-prisoners attitude, completely without apology. And there’s something that we are always drawn to that kind of character, because there’s a part of us that really wants to be a little bit more like that."

Immediately following the screening, Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A with actors Michelle Pfeiffer, Lucas Hedges and Valerie Mahaffey.

The film screens on Thursday, April 1 at 7 p.m. PDT. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
