'I Love America': 5 things you need to know about French movie on Prime Video
How easy is it to restart life on the other side of the ocean for Lisa? We'll find out in the new French movie 'I Love America' that releases on Prime Video on April 29
Prime Video audiences have been invited to step into the world of director Lisa Azuelos's new French movie 'I Love America' starring Sophie Marceau, who plays Lisa in the movie. It is about a French woman who takes a chance on life and love again by deciding to move from Paris to Los Angeles after her super famous mother's death.
The French movie is partly biographic as the film takes inspiration from director Lisa Azuelos' ('Dalida', 'Sweetheart', 'LOL') personal experience of moving to the United States. The French director said, “My only goal when I make a movie is to promote love and remind the audience it is our life purpose,” She added, “I am very honoured that Amazon is promoting this vision of mine.” From the trailer the movie looks charming and funny; Marceau is delightful and brings some French sensibilities to Los Angeles. While you are at it, you can also watch some other amazing comedy dramas like 'The Marvelous Mrs Maisel' and 'Harlem'.
When does 'I Love America' release and where can you watch it?
After making it's debut in France a few weeks ago in March, 'I Love America' is coming to the US for streaming on Prime Video starting on April 29.
What is 'I Love America' all about?
The official synopsis of the movie reads, "Lisa, a single woman who decides to take a chance on love again by catapulting her life from Paris to Los Angeles.
