Sony Pictures Classics has released the first image from director Azazel Jacobs’ forthcoming dark comedy film titled French Exit, providing us with our first look at Academy Award nominees Michelle Pfeiffer and Lucas Hedges as mother-son duo Frances and Malcolm Price. The film is expected to make its debut sometime this year. Check out the full photo below!
Based on Canadian author Patrick deWitt’s 2018 best-selling novel, French Exit will follow the story of a wealthy widowed mother and her adult son Frances Price and Malcolm Price, who have a dysfunctional relationship with Frances described as a possessive mother while Malcolm is emotionally-stunted. Joining the duo is their family’s aging cat named Small Frank, who is inhabited by the spirit of Frances’ dead husband. Because of an impending bankruptcy, she decided to move the family from New York to Paris.
The film stars Michelle Pfeiffer (Dangerous Liaisons) as Frances Price, Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea) as Malcolm Price, and Tracy Letts (Homeland) as the voice of Small Frank the cat. It will also feature Danielle MacDonald (Dumplin’), Valerie Mahaffey (Desperate Housewives), and Susan Coyne (Slings & Arrows).
French Exit is written and directed by Azazel Jacobs with Thorsten Schumacher serving as a producer.
