French Film Review: Les Cyclades

French Film Review: Les Cyclades

Recently divorced and watching helplessly as her only son leaves home, 40-something Blandine (Olivia Côte) is struggling to cope. When her childhood best friend Magalie (the deliriously madcap Laure Calamy), loud and fearless, suddenly resurfaces, the two women reconnect and 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 travel – and life-could lead Blandine to her breaking point. Kristin Scott Thomas co-stars as Magalie’s free-spirited expat friend and mentor.

Director: Marc Fitoussi
Starring: Laure Calamy, Kristin Scott Thomas
