Admit it: You’ve been wondering what Jean Dujardin, that Academy Award winner and handsome star of The Artist, has been up to. Or maybe you’ve been wondering about Marion Cotillard, from Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. Well, here’s your chance. Let’s go see Jean Dujardin (he’s the one I’ve been wondering about) in one of the latest French movies to open in Boston, Les petits mouchoirs (Little White Lies). Even the soundtrack sounds fascinating: Nina Simone and the Isley Brothers, among many others.
*****From the theater website:
French box-office sensation Little White Lies is an ensemble dramatic comedy by Guillaume Canet (Tell No One), starring Academy Award winners Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose) along with François Cluzet (Tell No One, The Intouchables) and Gilles Lellouche (Point Blank, Mesrine). Ludovic (Dujardin) is a central figure in a close-knit group of Parisian friends in the prime of life, each of whom has attained personal and professional success. But after leaving a nightclub in the early-morning hours, Ludo's life changes suddenly, tragically and irrevocably. As Ludo clings to life in an intensive care unit, his ex-girlfriend Marie (Cotillard) and his concerned friends half-heartedly embark on a shortened version of their planned annual summer getaway at Max's vacation home in Cap Ferrat in the southwest of France. But the sunny beachside idyll quickly turns to heated tensions and outbursts among old friends under pressure—and out come the petits mouchoirs, those little white lies that linger beneath the surface of every relationship. . . .
I will purchase my ticket by 4:30 p.m., then wait at the foot of the stairs in the theater lobby. Look for me carrying a red backpack. At about 4:45, I will move into the theater auditorium (can’t miss the previews). You can find me there, if you are late. The movie starts at 5:05 p.m.
After the movie, I will wait in the theater lobby to gather everyone. Look for the red backpack.
If we decide to go out after the movie, be prepared to add 25% to the cost of your order for both the tax and the tip. Restaurants in the area add the gratuity to the check automatically. Bring CASH to make division of the check easier.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend this event so I know who to look for.
