Greenwich Entertainment is pleased to announce the US theatrical release of TWO TICKETS TO GREECE, an irresistible French comedy about female camaraderie and new beginnings by writer-director Marc Fitoussi (Call My Agent!), 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, Two Weddings and a Funeral). TWO TICKETS TO GREECE will open on Friday, July 14 in New York (Quad Cinema), Los Angeles (Laemmle’s Santa Monica) and Chicago followed by a national expansion.
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 (the deliriously madcap 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.
Following her breakthrough role in the hit series Call My Agent!, Laure Calamy has gone on to become one of France’s most popular and versatile actors, winning the Best Actress César Award for Caroline Vignal’s romantic comedy My Donkey, My Lover and I and the Venice Horizons Best Actress award for Eric Gravel’s social drama Full Time.
After majoring in English and art history, Marc Fitoussi attended UCLA’s film school, and has, since his return to France, written and directed eight features including two with Isabelle Huppert, Copacabana (selected for Cannes’ International Critics’ Week) and Paris Follies (aka La Ritournelle). In addition, Fitoussi directed six of the most popular episodes of Call My Agent, with Monica Bellucci, Isabelle Huppert, Sandrine Kiberlain, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Sigourney Weaver.
