Quirky, intelligent and powerful, Madame will have you wanting to book a trip to France or return to that screenplay you’ve been fiddling with for years. Starring two of our most beloved actors, Madame is a delightfully offbeat film for writers, foodies, transcontinental escapists and those who appreciate the art of dinner party conversations.
Toni Collette (Muriel’s Wedding, Little Miss Sunshine) and Harvey Keitel (Taxi Driver, Reservoir Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom) star as Anne and Bob, a wealthy and well-connected American couple trying to rejuvenate their marriage by moving to Paris.
While preparing a dinner party for a chi-chi guest list of international notables, Anne realizes that (mon dieu!) there will be an odd number of guests. This sends her into a full-body panic. To solve this crisis, she insists her loyal maid, Maria (Rossy de Palma), disguise herself as a mysterious Spanish noblewoman to even out the numbers. But the combination of wine and some playful chat leads Maria to accidentally endear herself to a dandy British art broker (Michael Smiley). The budding romance will have Anne chasing Maria around Paris and plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.
Oh, the problems of the astonishingly rich!
