Mini Review - Chéri

Chéri (out Jul 23) is an unorthodox love story set in 1920s Paris about an ageing courtesan (Michelle Pfeiffer) who has a fulfilling relationship with the much younger son (Rupert Friend) of a close friend. Given their age difference, can it last? UK Director Stephen Frears does a great job keeping it light, fun to watch... which makes the final scene shockingly brilliant. Best ending of the year. Grade: A-.
