Michelle Pfeiffer’s Golden Globe-Nominated Pic ‘French Exit’ Due on Digital May 11, Disc June 15

The comedic drama French Exit, which earned Michelle Pfeiffer a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress, will be available for digital purchase May 11 and on Blu-ray and DVD June 15 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

“My plan was to die before the money ran out,” says 60-year-old, penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price (Pfeiffer) in the film, but things don’t go as planned. Her husband, Franklin, has been dead for 12 years. With his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris, accompanied by her directionless son, Malcolm (Lucas Hedges), and a cat named Small Frank — who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’ dead husband.

Extras include deleted and extended scenes.
