Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant who is not prepared to budge. His apartment is a viager - an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale - and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), who has lived in the apartment with her acid-tongued daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, may just turn out to be a permanent fixture! Soon, a hilarious and heart-tugging war of wills is underway, and may the best man - or old lady - win! Crafted from a unique blend of comedy, drama and ultimately, romance, My Old Lady marks the directorial debut of acclaimed playwright/screenwriter Israel Horovitz (The Strawberry Statement; Author! Author!), who based the film on his celebrated play of the same name. (Dir. by Israel Horovitz, 2014, USA/France, in English, 107 mins., Rated PG-13, Cohen Media Group) Digital
