About the Film:

Directed by Emmanuelle Bercot. 2014. France. 113 mins. French with English subtitles

Now in her early sixties, former beauty queen Bettie (the ever-stunning Catherine Deneuve) finds herself jilted by her lover and left alone to deal with the financial problems facing her family’s restaurant. What begins as a quick drive to clear her head turns into a full-fledged road trip, and along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love. A fun-filled riff on the American road-movie, On My Way is also a fantastic tribute to Catherine Deneuve’s filmography, packed with references to François Truffaut, André Téchiné, François Dupeyron and more.

Official Selection: Berlin International Film Festival, London Film Festival, Hong Kong International Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, Hawaii International Film Festival.
