“Quite possibly, at 80, the oldest American director to ever make a debut dramatic feature, Eleanor Coppola (yes, Francis Coppola’s wife) serves up a sweet little divertissement with PARIS CAN WAIT, a charming travelogue/food-a-thon about two middle-aged acquaintances on a two-day road trip from Cannes to Paris….Big-time producer Michael Lockwood (Alec Baldwin) and his wife Anne (Diane Lane) prepare to hop on a private jet for Paris. Declining to fly due to an ear infection, Anne says she’ll happily take the train, but is instead convinced to hop a ride with Michael’s “business associate” Jacques (Viard), whom she knows a bit… it’s an escape from real life, from anything consequential, a chance to delight in the pleasures that humans can take from what grows in the earth and from an amiable companion’s company”—Todd McCarthy, Variety. And, of course, that’s what it is for the audience! PG. 92 Min.
