My Old Lady

Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is really just a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who uttered a Parisian apartment out of his estranged father. However, if he arrives to sell the vast domicile, he is shocked to locate. His apartment is an viager - an ancient French realestate system with all complex rules related to its own resale value - and also the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), who has lived at the apartment with her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) for a lot of decades, can by contract collect monthly premiums from Mathias before her death.
