Summary
Frances Price -- tart widow, possessive mother, and Upper East Side force of nature -- is beset by scandal and impending bankruptcy. Her adult son Malcolm is no help, mired in a permanent state of arrested development. And then there's the Price's aging cat, Small Frank, who Frances believes houses the spirit of her late husband, an infamously immoral litigator and world-class cad whose gruesome tabloid death rendered Frances and Malcolm social outcasts. Putting penury and pariahdom behind them, the family decides to cut their losses and head for the exit. One ocean voyage later, the curious trio land in their beloved Paris, the City of Light serving as a backdrop not for love or romance, but self destruction and economical ruin -- to riotous effect. "French Exit" is a one-of-a-kind tragedy of manners, a riotous send-up of high society, as well as a moving mother/son caper which only Patrick deWitt could conceive and execute
