The L.A. County Museum of Art is having a French Film Fridays series this summer and this film based on the book Bonjour Tristesse, is playing at the end of July. I would like to read the book before I see the film. Are there any fans of this old book/movie out there?
According to the always trustworthy Wikipedia David Niven plays Raymond, a playboy widower with a taste for meaningless affairs with younger women, Jean Sebring is his daughter Cecile and Deborah Kerr the more mature woman who probably turns the whole thing around.
The book was written in 1954 when Sagan was 18 and made into a film by the legendary Otto Preminger. Sounds yummy to me. Anyone?
