On My Way: Bercot’s Love Letter to Catherine Deneuve

On My Way is the love letter  written specifically to the legendart star Catherine Deneuve by writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot.

The movie has played the London Film Fest and will feature as opening selection of Lincoln Center’s Rendez Vous with French Cinema, in March 2014.
After being dumped by her married lover (for a 25-year-old woman), former beauty queen Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) grows tired of managing her failing restaurant and aging mother and, desperately trying to shake a lifetime of regret, impulsively sets off on a road trip adventure with an unexpected traveling companion, the ten year old grandson she barely knows.
Emmanuelle Bercot’s letter to the screen icon Deneuve is an engaging and whimsical journey of self-discovery and renewal.
