COMEDY / FRANCE / 2022 / 110MINS / M
Three fabulous femmes – Laure Calamy (Full Time, AF FFF22), Olivia Côte (Antoinette in the Cévennes, AF FFF21) and Kristin Scott Thomas (I’ve Loved You So Long, AF FF08) – star in the wildly entertaining new comedy from writer/director Marc Fitoussi (Call My Agent! AF FFF16) about estranged childhood friends who tentatively reunite for a trip to the Greek Islands.
Recently divorced, and watching helplessly as her only son leaves home, Blandine is struggling to find her footing again. When her former best friend Magalie (a scene-stealing Calamy) loud and fearless, suddenly resurfaces, she allows herself to be spontaneous for a change... The two will take the trip they always dreamed of as teenagers, to Amorgos, the amazing location where Luc Besson's The Big Blue was shot. As they head off towards their destination, it's soon apparent that Magalie's very different approach to holidaying - and to life - could lead Blandine to her breaking point... and beyond!
Premiering at the Festival simultaneously with its French theatrical release, Two Tickets to Greece is an out-and- out crowd-pleaser, a breezily delightful tale of female camaraderie, stoked by laughter, tears and, of course, great scenery. Advance bookings will be essential!
