Michelle Pfeiffer gives an outstanding performance in this quirky tale of a rich Manhattan widow running out of money and escaping to Paris with her twenty-something son to enjoy the last of her funds before meeting death. Her plan, she says, was ‘to die before the money ran out’.  Frances is distinctly weird – she sharpens knives in the dark for the sound it makes, she believes her cat carries her husband’s soul, she torches a flower arrangement in a café because she doesn’t like the waiter’s attitude. But Pfeiffer manages to rise above caricature and plays this complex and not entirely likeable character to perfection.  A touch of the supernatural permeates this bittersweet droll comedy, with a screenplay by Patrick de Witt based on his novel of the same name.
