Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of ON MY WAY, the love letter to Catherine Deneuve written specifically for the screen legend by writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot.  ON MY WAY has been selected as the Opening Night of Lincoln Center's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema on March 6, and will be released in New York on Friday, March 14 at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.

After being dumped by her married lover for a 25-year-old woman, former beauty queen Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) grows tired of managing her failing restaurant and aging mother and, desperately trying to shake a lifetime of regret, impulsively sets off on a road trip adventure with an unexpected traveling companion, the ten year old grandson she barely knows. Emmanuelle Bercot (Polisse, Clement)'s love letter to screen icon Deneuve is an engaging and whimsical journey of self-discovery and renewal.

Catherine Deneuve has appeared in more than 100 films since gaining wide acclaim for her roles in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Jacques Demy) and Repulsion (Roman Polanski).  She has been muse to French directors André Téchiné and Francois Ozon as well as designer Yves Saint Laurent and has worked with other directing greats including Luis Buñuel (Belle de Jour), François Truffaut (The Last Metro), Arnaud Desplechin (A Christmas Tale), and Lars von Trier (Dancer in the Dark). Among her many accolades, she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for Indochine, and honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards from The Film Society of Lincoln Center - the Charlie Chaplin Award - and the 2013 European Film Awards.
