Synopsis

Penniless New Yorker Mathias (Kevin Kline) travels to Paris to liquidate a huge apartment he has inherited from his estranged father. He is stunned to find a refined old lady named Mathilde (Maggie Smith) living there with her very protective daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas). He soon learns that under ancient French law, he will not actually gain possession of the apartment until Mathilde dies. With its unique blend of comedy, drama and, ultimately, romance, My Old Lady marks the directorial debut of internationally celebrated playwright-screenwriter Israel Horovitz and stars screen icons Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas.
