Check It. François Ozon's Potiche.

If you're not up for seeing The Lincoln Lawyer, Sucker Punch, or Battle: Los Angeles this weekend, Potiche (translation: trophy wife) may be more your speed.

Director François Ozon is perhaps best known for his 2003 film Swimming Pool. His latest release, an adaptation of the hit play with the same name, stars Catherine Deneuve and Gérard Depardieu in a 103-minute comedy set in 1977 bourgeois France. That red Adidas track suit is great, and there's a breakfast table (complete with French press, naturally) I wouldn't mind having a seat at. The costumes and set design are bound to be captivating throughout--not to mention the acting.

Potiche is playing at West L.A.'s Landmark Theatre.
