DRIVING MADELEINE Opening at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Opening January 26, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater presents Driving Madeline, a sentimental drama that centers around two people who learn a valuable life lesson from each other.
Madeleine (Line Renaud), 92 years old, calls a taxi to take her to the retirement home where she will be living. Charles (Dany Boone), a disillusioned driver with a tender heart, agrees to drive by the places that affected Madeleine's life. Through the streets of Paris, her extraordinary past is revealed. They don't know it yet, but they will forge a friendship during this drive that will change their lives forever. [2022, France, 91 min, Rating: NR, in French with English subtitles]
Neely Swanson of the Beverly Hills Courier says, “Driving Madeleine is a gift to all of us, old and young. Director Christian Carion, working from his adaptation of a script by Cyril Gely, has shone a light on the value of living a life, both troubled and indomitable, and sharing that vision.
