Here is the trailer from the upcoming film “MY OLD LADY”. The film is directed by Israel Horovitz, starring Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith, and Kristin Scott Thomas.
The film premieres on September 10 in NY and LA
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.
With no place to go, Mathias strikes a tentative lodging arrangement with Mathilde, instantly clashing with suspicious, lovelorn Chloé over his private dealings with a rapacious property developer, who wants to purchase the apartment. An uneasy détente settles in as the quarreling Mathias and Chloé come to discover a common ground of childhood pain and neglect. As they draw increasingly closer, Mathilde unveils a complex labyrinth of secrets that unites the trio in unexpected ways.
With its unique blend of comedy, drama and ultimately romance, MY OLD LADY marks the directorial debut of internationally celebrated playwright Israel Horovitz, adapting his own hit play. Filmed on location in a ravishing Paris of quiet back streets and familiar locales, MY OLD LADY is a touching romantic drama about inheritance and past secrets coming home to roost, featuring an all-star cast working together at the height of their powers.
