HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/5/12 – “I’m grateful to make a film that takes you through some deeper places… but does it in a very loving, gentle and recreative way” says Paris Can Wait star Diane Lane.
“I didn’t know about directing. I felt I needed to take a directing class just to understand what the director does. I was never the director, I was the observer” says Paris Can Wait director Eleanor Coppola, who has an extensive career on documentaries but had never done a fictional film until now. “And I took an acting class to understand what it is to be an actor and what they go through… It was terrifying.”
The story is about Anne, a woman who is married to a successful movie producer and decides to take a car from Cannes to Paris, instead of a plane with her husband. One of her husband’s business associates is her only company, and a trip that should have been a 7 hours’ drive, becomes a longer journey.

- Diane Lane as Anne Lockwood
- Arnaud Viard as Jacques Clement
- Alec Baldwin (@AlecBaldwin) as Michael Lockwood
