A heart-warming comedy-drama exploring the intoxicating affair between an aspiring writer and the wife of a French diplomat. Would-be writer Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin) meets the alluring Arielle Pierpont (Bérénice Marlohe), the two striking an immediate connection. As they embark on an affair, Brian’s inexperience beautifully contrasts with Arielle’s ethereal wisdom.
Featuring star-studded support from Frank Langella and six-time Academy Award-nominated Glenn Close, and set in New York’s eternally romantic landscape, this is a touching drama of life-affirming passion.
