translated by Alison Anderson
Four siblings are reunited one afternoon in the French countryside after skipping out on a boring family wedding. Leaving behind needy spouses, annoying relatives, and the dull demands of encroaching adulthood, they embark on one final, riotous and joyful adventure in search of the happiness they knew as children and the bonds that once united them.
Simon, Garance and Lola flee a family wedding to visit their younger brother, Vincent, who is working as a guide at a château in the heart of the enchanting French countryside. Reunited, they will lose themselves in a day of laughter, teasing, and nostalgia. When their adventure ends, as simply and as spontaneously as it began, all four return to their everyday lives, carrying with them the magic of their brief reunion.
Lighthearted, tender and funny, French Leave is a tribute to sibling relationships, local Loire wines, and the art of being together.
