ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at this new clip from director Patrice Leconte’s My Best Friend, which IFC Films will release on July 13. The film stars Daniel Auteuil, Danny Boon and Julie Gayet.
In the comedy, François is a middle-aged antique dealer. He has a stylish apartment and a fabulous life, but at a dinner with a group he considers his dearest acquaintances, he is blindsided by the revelation that none of them actually likes him. He’s arrogant, self-centered and harsh, and they don’t believe he knows the meaning of friendship. His business partner Catherine makes him a bet: if he can produce his best friend, she will let him keep the massive Greek vase he acquired that afternoon on the company tab. If not, it’s hers.
