At the Movies: Michelle Pfeiffer has a feast with ‘French Exit'

AP Film Writer

Is there any living actor better at the disdainful eye roll than Michelle Pfeiffer? Her latest turn in “ French Exit ” should end all debate on the matter. The film itself is a bit of an odd duckling. It's arch, cold and self-consciously contrived, works more often than it doesn't. Pfeiffer is flawless in her most delicious performance in years as a New York society woman who has, much to her aloof annoyance, run out of money.
