Your source for updates and discussion of the new Kevin Kline dramedy, which also stars Maggie Smith, Kristin Scott Thomas and Dominique Pinon.  The Paris-based dramatic comedy marks the film directorial debut of playwright and screenwriter Israel Horovitz. 

We conducted an informal poll around the office and our friends telling them to rate a film based on what we know about Israel Horovitz's play and the actors.  Unfortunately the results were not good.  Summary of the results:

People said things like:

"While it was ok for a live play, it sounds really boring for a full length movie..." - Alan S.

"Maggie Smith looks like an alien, making it hard to watch for a long time...the adorable old bag..."  - Susan P.

"Kristin Scott Thomas' accent is annoying" - Herik I.
