Synopsis

Two French actors portray two French actors, friends at odds with one another in every possible way, except with regard to their love for performing Moliere's "The Misanthrope". Gauthier; tall, handsome, and the beneficiary of a leading role in a wildly popular, wildly ridiculous soap opera; he is a beloved cosmetic surgeon who "saves lives". Regarding the random nature of his good fortune, Gauthier is both embarrassed and defensive; he seeks to re-establish his acting bona-fides by starring in and directing Moliere on the Paris stage.

Per Theater Chart: Most Limited Releases have a Rough Time

April 30th, 2014

There are a few of films with truly great reviews, including Blue Ruin, which not only has amazing reviews, but also earned a number of film festival awards. Both Last Passenger and Locke are also earning close to 90% positive reviews, but none of them really feel like limited release hits. More...
