Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant who is not prepared to budge. His apartment is a viager - an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale - and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), who has lived in the apartment with her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, can by contract collect monthly payments from Mathias until her death.
Director: Israel Horovitz
Starring: Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Maggie Smith
What the critics are saying:
The film begins with upbeat music and what appears to be a comedy-of-errors setup, but it becomes so much more, bringing us through dark territory with wit, anger and grace, becoming in the end a much fuller tale for it
My Old Lady is pretty compelling viewing, mostly thanks to Kline, who gives a career-high performance here.
The venerable acting firm of Smith-Kline & Scott Thomas make certain that this Paris trip is anything but a waste.
