Anne is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successful, driven but inattentive movie producer, she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband. What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a carefree two-day adventure replete with diversions involving picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humor, wisdom and romance, reawakening Anne's senses and giving her a new lust for life.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Paris Can Wait's likable stars are ill-served by a film that lacks interesting ideas or characters and has little to offer beyond striking travelogue visuals.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Paris Can Wait is a sun-kissed dramedy starring Diane Lane that also functions as a travelogue, following two characters on a road trip from the South of France to Paris. There's frank talk about the ups and downs of marriage and the societal virtue of food, art, beauty and more -- all of which might be a little dry/uninteresting for younger viewers. But there's not all that much iffy content: Characters swear infrequently (mostly "hell" and "goddamn") and drink a lot of wine (sometimes getting tipsy). And one character smokes a lot, though another points out the perils of the vice. There's also quite a bit of flirting/romantic tension, though things don't get any racier than a kiss and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene that implies two characters had sex.
