Michelle Pfeiffer and Lucas Hedges star as oddball mother and son in the delightfully surreal comedy-drama film that is ‘French Exit.’ Channeling the whimsical undertones of a Wes Anderson movie, ‘French Exit’ is a charmingly offbeat and funny story about a woman who has all but exhausted her dead husband’s inheritance and decides to move to Paris with her son. ‘French Exit’ is based on the eponymous book by Patrick deWitt (who also wrote the screenplay) and is directed by Azazel Jacobs. Curious to know more about the plot of ‘French Exit’ and where you can stream it? Here’s all you need to know.
