Paris Can Wait movie quotes provide the dialogue for the film about a woman on a road trip to Paris with one of her husband's business associates. The comedy was written and directed by Eleanor Coppola. Paris Can Wait first premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival before opening theatrically in the United States on May 12, 2017.
In Paris Can Wait, married couple Michael (Alec Baldwin) and Anne (Diane Lane) are in Europe while Michael conducts business there. Just as they are set to fly to Budapest, Anne feels she should skip Budapest and travel directly to Paris instead. Jacques (Arnaud Viard), a business partner of Michael, just happens to be driving to Paris and invites Anne to join him on the journey.
While Anne accepts the ride, she didn't expect that the trip would not be direct. Jacques, a believer in seeing a country by driving through it, makes several stops and detours along the way. Initially, this frustrates Anne, who is eager to get to Paris but after a while, she embraces the adventure which includes seeing the sights, delicious food and fine wine.
