TWO TICKETS TO GREECE is an irresistible French comedy about female camaraderie and new beginnings. Starring Best Actress César winner Laure Calamy (Full Time, My Donkey, My Lover & I, Call My Agent!), Olivia Côte (My Donkey, My Lover & I) and Academy Award Nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient, Four Weddings and a Funeral).
Recently divorced, and watching helplessly as her only son leaves home, 40-something Blandine (Olivia Côte) is struggling to find her footing again. When her childhood former best friend Magalie (Laure Calamy), loud and fearless, suddenly resurfaces, the two women reconnect, and Blandine reluctantly allows herself to be spontaneous for a change. They decide to take the summer trip to the Greek Islands they had always dreamed of as teenagers, but, as they head off towards their destination, it’s apparent that Magalie’s very different approach to vacationing-and life-could lead Blandine to her breaking point. Kristin Scott Thomas co-stars as Magalie’s free-spirited expat friend and mentor.
“A sunny comedy about a truncated vacation that is sustained by the charisma of the always immense Laure Calamy.” – Philipp Engel, Cinemania
