Original title – ‘Mr Morgan’s Last Love’. Matthew Morgan (Michael Caine) is a widowed, world-weary professor living in Paris. The cynical Matthew sees no meaningful future for himself – until he meets Pauline (Clémence Poésy), a free-spirited young dance instructor who finds the old grump utterly beguiling.
When Morgan’s angry and baffled grownup children Miles (Justin Kirk) and Karen (Gillian Anderson) enter the picture, can they become a family, or will his estranged adult children halt the friendship?
The unlikely bond they form ultimately leads them to rediscover the joy that only family and true friendship can offer.
