Actually, the retirement home we filmed in is very nice, beautiful, in fact. Great parks and gardens. Half the residents don’t pay anything and the rest pay a little. The escape with our friend, Claude, in his wheelchair, reminded me a little of the hospital escape scene with me, Lily and Dolly in “9 to 5”.
The oldest resident turned 109 the day before and we visited her. She was quite lucid. When I congratulated her on turning 109, she said she wasn’t happy at all with the numbers. I’d have loved to really interview here but we were called back to the set for a shot.
Today I will receive a medal from the city of Paris at a Paris Film Festival press conference. Rushing out for that right now.
Till next time
