On My Way


In On My Way, cinema legend Catherine Deneuve gives a subtle yet commanding performance, tender and generous, as former beauty queen Bettie, owner of a struggling restaurant in a small town in Brittany. Now in her early sixties, the once celebrated beauty finds herself jilted by her lover and left alone to face financial woes. Taking a quick drive to clear her head and momentarily escape from her problems, Bettie instead finds herself instead embarking on a full-fledged road trip; along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala reunion, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love. Directed and co-written by Emmanuelle Bercot (Cleménte). (Dir. by Emmanuelle Bercot, 2013, France, in French with subtitles, 113 mins., Not Rated, Cohen Media Group) Digital
