Contest: See My Old Lady!

One more contest for our friends in TORONTO, MONTREAL and VANCOUVER today. Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to see an advance screening of MY OLD LADY on Thursday, October 2nd, courtesy of Dork Shelf and D Films.

My Old Lady tells the story of Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline), a down-and-out New Yorker who travels to Paris to liquidate a huge and valuable apartment he has inherited from his estranged father. When he reaches his apartment in Paris he finds Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), a refined old lady living in the apartment with her daughter, Chloe (Jane Birkin). He then discovers the romantic history between Mathilde and his father, a romance that lasted over half a century.


Making his feature film directorial debut is Israel Horovitz, who also wrote the screenplay for the film. Horvitz is the most produced American playwright in French theatre history and has recently been decorated as Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettre, France’s highest honor for foreign artists.

Horvitz has also written numerous award winning screenplays including The Strawberry Statement, which took the jury prize at Cannes in 1970, Al Pacino comedy Author!
