Starts of Slowly but Evolves into a Charming Film
- My Life with James Dean review by AA
The film evolves around Geraud a film director and "his my life with James Dean" picture which is being shown at a series of cinemas on the French Coast, the owner of which is fighting to keep her Lesbian lover and the under aged projectionist who falls madly for him, Add to the mix a hotel receptionist who wants to be an actress, but meets a care home worker who manages to get 59 of his residents to view the film and a fleeting visit from the star of the film to add to the mix. Starts slowly but by the time it has ended I was drawn totally into the action and praying that things will work out!
