LONDON – Maggie Smith of Downton Abbey fame has joined Kevin Kline, Jane Birkin and Dominique Pinon in the cast for Israel Horovitz's My Old Lady.
The Paris-based dramatic comedy marks the feature film directorial debut for playwright and screenwriter Horovitz, who adapted his award-winning stage play for the screen.
It's the story of a down-and-out New Yorker who travels to Paris to liquidate a huge, valuable apartment he has inherited from his estranged father. He discovers a refined old lady living in the apartment with her daughter and learns that she and his father were lovers for more than 50 years.
