French (English subtitles)
In this mischevious, 1970s-set farce, a French factory owner's submissive spouse breaks free of her domestic shackles with delightful results. Euro-cinema icon Catherine Deneuve sparkles as the much-ridiculed Suzanne Pujol, who, throughout her difficult marriage has never been regarded as anything but a potiche - a trophy wife. So when her chauvinist hubbie Robert's tyrannical ways cause his staff to stage a strike and even take him hostage, everyone’s flabbergasted by Suzanne's assertive response. Instead of calling in the police, Suzanne settles the dispute herself, assisted by old-flame and local politician, Maurice Babin. However, her newfound confidence and leadership skills go down badly with Robert, kicking off a battle of wills that intensifies hilariously after she makes herself factory director.
Robin Wright Penn heads up an impressive ensemble cast as Mrs Lee, a sedate suburban housewife with a complicated past.
