Waiting for you

” Compelled by grief and curiosity a young Englishman travels to France where he meets an eccentric older woman and unearths truths about the father he never really knew and about himself.” – Waitingforyoumovie.com


Co-written with Hugh Stoddart and Charles Garrad directing

Grieving young Englishman Paul (Colin Morgan) escapes to France looking for something he thinks is owed to his dead father. He worms his way into a mysterious, crumbling house owned by elegant, imperious musician Madeleine (Fanny Ardant). Thus begins a game of cat and mouse between them. Both have dangerous secrets to reveal, and when all the painful truths seem to have been pulled into the light comes Madeleine’s final astonishing revelation.
