The Sedona International Film Festival will present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Paris Can Wait,” starring Academy Award-nominees Diane Lane and Alec Baldwin and Arnaud Viard. The film will show Friday, June 30, through Thursday, July 6, at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
The film, Eleanor Coppola’s feature film directorial and screenwriting debut — at the age of 81 — stars Academy Award-nominee Diane Lane as a Hollywood producer’s wife who unexpectedly takes a trip through France, which reawakens her joie de vivre.
Anne [Lane] is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a driven but inattentive movie producer [Baldwin], she finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband [Viard].
What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a journey of discovery involving mouthwatering meals, spectacular wines and picturesque sights.
“A cinematic treat. A film worth savoring. A celebration of food, wine and stopping to smell the roses.” — Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
“Buoyant and light-hearted. Diane Lane is a pleasure throughout.” — Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
“A delicious romantic bon bon. Diane Lane is irresistible. A road trip that shimmers with so many enticing temptations you may want to lick the screen.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
