The Chef's WifeFriday 9/11 - 11:30 am - Cinépolis La Costa
Marithé (Karin Viard) works in a training center and her main responsibility is to assist people seeking alternative job options. One day, Carole (Emmanuelle Devos) arrives at the center, looking for new professional opportunities. She can no longer stand the pressure of working with her talented Michelin-starred chef husband, Sam (Roschdy Zem), nor does she want to live in his shadow. She’s never finished her studies and thus reaches out to Marithé to turn her life around.
The two women hit it off immediately, bonding over their desire for change. Both want more out of life in the workplace and in their personal life but they’re not sure how to go about it. When Marithé meets Sam, Carole’s husband, she’s instantly attracted to him. Suddenly, her motives to help Carole start over, become very personal.
A real crowd pleaser, this fun tragicomedy stars French superstar actresses Emmanuelle Devos (Just a Sigh, A Christmas Tale) as Carole, and Karine Viard (Polisse, My Piece of the Pie) as Marithé. French heartthrob Roschdy Zem (Outside the Law, My Wife is an Actress) completes this all-star cast as Sam, the object of Marithé’s desire. The Chef’s Wife was part of the 2015 In French With English Subtitles Film Festival in New York and the 2015 Palm Spring International Film Festival in California and continues its festival tour across the country.
