Looking for another location?
When Guillaume Canet’s star-studded comedy Little White Lies exploded at the global box office in 2010 (achieving a stunning 5.2 million admissions), it seemed almost assured that the glittering cast would reunite. The challenge has taken nearly a decade to achieve, but the wait has been worth it.
It’s been years since middle-aged restaurateur Max (François Cluzet) has received his friends at his gorgeous summer house in the chic beach community of Cap Ferret. The group have traditionally reconnected there for his birthday, but since things didn’t exactly go as planned last time, they haven’t seen much of one another. It turns out Max is divorcing and his villa is up for sale, so when pals Marie (Marion Cotillard), Vincent (Benoît Magimel), now-famous actor Éric (Gilles Lellouche) and his hapless buddy-turned-assistant Antoine (Laurent Lafitte) arrive unannounced to celebrate a significant milestone, it’s not necessarily a welcome surprise.
Handsomely mounted and music-fuelled, We’ll End Up Together - the second highest-grossing French film of 2019 - is a story of long-term bonds and the joy of friendship, but also of suppressed emotions, personal and professional resentments, and the many ways having children can both fracture and cement social circles. Get your own friends together, and be dazzled by this raucous slice of rollicking, all-star fun.
"“Highly polished… this very Gallic take on ‘The Big Chill’ (is) good news for lovers of comedy.”"
