Marguerite Opening Soon In New York And Los Angeles

MARGUERITE, writer-director Xavier Giannoli’s satirical tragicomedy set in France in the 1920s, starring Catherine Frot (The Dinner Game, Family Resemblances) as Marguerite Dumont, an eccentric and exceedingly wealthy would-be Opera diva. Marguerite lives in a sumptuous mansion, spending much of her time singing famous opera arias dressed in elaborate theatrical costumes. Marguerite sings whole-heartedly, bearing her soul, but is also terribly, and comically, out of tune. When a young, provocative journalist writes a rave review of her latest private recital, Marguerite’s delusion that she’s a talented diva continues to grow. When she decides to train for her first public recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers, she forces those around her to finally confront the lie they’ve helped create. Marguerite opens in New York’ Paris Theatre and Angelika Film Center and at the Landmark in Los Angeles on March 11th. 2011.For more information, please visit: http://cohenmedia.net/films/marguerite
