French Exit (Members Preview)

Azazel Jacobs | U.S.A. | | M
Film

After spending the last of her late husband's inheritance, an eccentric socialite moves to Paris with her aimless son and a cat named Small Frank in Azazel Jacobs' latest film.

In Pfeiffer's hands – or her clutches, we might say – privilege has seldom seemed so delectable.

Variety

This March, ACMI Members can enjoy a sneak preview of Azazel Jacobs' (Momma’s Man, Terri) latest film starring Michelle Pfeiffer as a penniless Manhattan socialite who heads to Paris, accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm (Lucas Hedges) and a cat named Small Frank — who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’ dead husband.

Since the film’s premiere at the 2020 New York Film Festival, Michelle Pfeiffer has been hotly tipped as someone to watch this awards season. But it seems that her pitch-perfect portrayal of a wealthy socialite might have more than the Academy voters doing a double-take. As Vanity Fair reported: "at [the] NYFF virtual press conference, Pfeiffer said she based the character off of a compilation of people she knew, which, perhaps, may dispatch some of her acquaintances into some late-night spirals of self-reflection."
