This terrific new comedy of manners is about two couples whose loyalties to each other are unexpectedly tested. 40-something Lea (Bérénice Bejo) works in retail, and is happily married to Marc (Vincent Cassel). Lea has long been considered a dreamer by her know-it-all best friend Karine (Florence Foresti), who seems content enough with her life with gentle giant Francis (François Damiens) and their two kids. But something is about to upset the intricate balance of this quartet – Lea has written a book which a major publisher is interested in. Great things seem assured, if only her friends and husband can handle it…
