My Old Lady
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present a “Festival Flashback” of the sensational acclaimed film “My Old Lady” on Monday, March 8 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“My Old Lady” is the second film in a month-long tribute to Dame Maggie Smith with a special “Maggie Mondays” series in March featuring a different Maggie Smith film every Monday.
He’s in the will. She’s in the way.
Academy Award-winners Kevin Kline and Maggie Smith and Academy Award-nominee Kristin Scott Thomas star in this witty and heartfelt drama about surprising inheritances and unexpected connections.
When Mathias Gold (Kline) arrives at the sumptuous Parisian apartment he inherited from his father, he’s surprised that the property comes with two stubborn live-in tenants — Mathilde (Maggie Smith), and her daughter, Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) — who are not required to leave according to an ancient French real estate law that makes him unable to sell the place,.
But as Mathias and Chloé draw increasingly closer, Mathilde unveils a complex labyrinth of secrets that unites the trio in unexpected ways.
