Movie To See. Marguerite. Laugh. Cry - 2016

Official Poster

Movie To See. Marguerite. “Cover Your Ears and Open Your Heart.”  Opening Friday March 11. New York at the Paris Theatre. Winner of nine César Awards, including Best Actress for a touching, magnificent Catherine Frot who plays an opera singer who can’t sing because she is tone deaf, but doesn’t know it. I laughed. I cried. I was touched. Marguerite Dumont is loosely based on the tone-deaf American Socialite, Florence Foster Jenkins but she is transplanted to a gorgeous castle near Paris in the ’20s (actually filmed in a castle just outside Prague.)   I was transported to another world. Everyone and everything in this  marvelous French movie directed by Xavier Gianoli, who took 10 years to get it to the screen, is spectacularly wonderful – the ambience, sets, fashions, cast, acting.
