Plot Summary:

Cannes crowd-pleaser "Looking for Eric" is a tender, life-affirming, and hilarious nod to the possibility of second chances. When down-and-out postal worker Eric Bishop (Steve Evets) reaches the end of his rope — his two layabout stepsons are set on driving him to an early grave, his second marriage is in ruins, and that's just the start of his troubles — he finds some unexpected motivation to turn his life around and win back the love of his life from none other than his idol, the legendary footballer Eric Cantona of Manchester United.
