Comedy/Romance | France
Françoise has just been abandoned by her husband for a much younger woman. Her daughters, Rose and Alice, decide to take her on a resort getaway to help cheer her up and celebrate her 60th birthday. Alongside parties, drinks, and excessive tans, the girls help Françoise get her groove back.
With an authentic eye on mother-daughter relationships, this wholly female-led film from writer-director Eloise Lang is a breezy delight. Fast-paced, bawdy and packed with hilarious one-liners, Dumped is a feel-good blast of fresh air for audiences of all ages.
