Legendary French actress Catherine Deneuve plays the President's wife, Bernadette Chirac, in this uproarious comedy based on actual events. In 1995, Jacques Chirac is elected French President.

When Bernadette Chirac steps into the Elys e, she finds herself set aside as old-fashioned, cold, and sour-tempered.
With the help of her chief of staff, Bernard Niquet (Denis Podalyd s), she embarks on a campaign to restore her reputation and assert her role as First Lady.

Director L a Domenach skillfully blurs the lines between fact and fiction in this film of female empowerment, presenting a captivating portrait of an unexpected feminist icon.
This delightful satire offers a heartwarming celebration of Bernadette Chirac's resilience and wit.

You'll laugh, you'll smile, and you will most certainly empathize with this delightful character, flawlessly personified by the wonderful Catherine Deneuve, nominated for a Lumiere Award for Best Actress for this must-see film!

The President's Wife (Bernadette) screens from 23rd May as part of our French Film Festival www.avocabeachtheatre.com..french-film-festival-2024.
