WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Anaïs (Demoustier) is a free-spirited but directionless thirty-something who flows from one lover to the next. After a brief fling with the older Daniel (Podalydès), who immediately falls for her, she finds herself more captivated by his long-time partner, successful writer Emilie (Bruni-Tedeschi), and an affair begins between the two of them that may provide Anaïs with what she may be missing in her life…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

This French romantic-comedy is a delightful crowd-pleaser that plays like a sun-drenched version of The Worst Person in the World, but with just as much charm and delight.
