A FRIENDLY TALE

LATEST REVIEWS
Life-loving 40-something Lea works in retail, and is happily married to Marc, a conservative and somewhat insecure salesman. Lea has long been considered a dreamer by her know-it-all best friend Karine, who seems content enough with her advertising executive job and life with gentle giant Francis and their two kids. But something is about to upset the intricate balance of this quartet.

Over dinner one evening, Lea unexpectedly announces she is trying her hand at writing a novel, a declaration met with some bemusement; Marc is certainly unconvinced. Lea’s burst of creativity triggers an apparently threatened Karine to pick up her own pen, and even Francis dusts off a long-abandoned artistic side. When Lea’s book is picked up by a major publisher great things seem assured, if only her friends and husband can handle it.
