Private Project

There's Still Paris

Margie and Linda, ladies in their sixties, plan a trip to Paris together. Margie is a widow. Morrie, Linda’s husband, can’t go because he won’t take the Covid vaccine. Millie has just separated from her husband. At the last minute, Margie cancels and Millie takes her place and joins Linda in Paris. Millie picks up a boyfriend, disappears and leaves Linda on her own. There are flashbacks to Linda’s first trip to Paris in 1969 when she had a brief affair with the male model from her art class.
Linda, in the present, rediscovers her ambitions as an artist. Millie shows up after being dumped by her French lover. Millie tries unsuccessfully to reconcile with her estranged husband. Linda’s interest in being an artist is rekindled and she reunites with Morrie who, as expected, meets her at the airport.
