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 who are not required to leave according to an ancient French real estate law. Unable to sell the place, Mathias moves in with the feisty Englishwoman, Mathilde (Maggie Smith), and her daughter, Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas). But as Mathias and Chloé draw increasingly closer, Mathilde unveils a complex labyrinth of secrets that unites the trio in unexpected ways.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Although My Old Lady doesn't quite live up to its stars' talents, Kevin Kline and Maggie Smith carry the film capably whenever they're together onscreen.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that My Old Lady revolves around very messy, long-hidden family secrets that finally are revealed, disrupting the lives of three people (none of whom is particularly admirable) who are all nursing old wounds. There are some intense arguments, and orecovering alcoholic falls off the wagon in a spectacularly unpleasant relapse. Profanity is very sparing, which makes the words ("d--k," "s--t") have an even stronger impact when they're heard. There's also some kissing, off-screen sex, and casual/social drinking.
