French Children Don’t Throw Food: Anne Hathaway to Star in Film Adaptation
A film adaptation based on Pamela Druckerman’s autobiography French Children Don’t Throw Food is in development at StudioCanal with Oscar winner Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables, Rachel Getting Married, Love & Other Drugs) set to star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie, described as Julie & Julia in tone, would follow an American journalist who moves to Paris for her husband’s job and raises a family there. As she tries to figure out how to balance her family and career — and battle the feelings that she is failing at both — she observes her French neighbors and friends to uncover the secrets behind parenting astonishingly well-behaved French children. However, she learns that everyone, no matter how perfect they appear, has their own problems.
The most recent draft of the project is written by Jamie Minoprio and Jonathan Stern.
The film adaptation would be financed by StudioCanal and produced by Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin’s Blueprint Picture (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Emma).
