‘French Exit’ Plot: What’s the film about?

“My plan was to die before the money ran out,” says 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price (Michelle Pfeiffer), but things didn’t go as planned.

Frances Price’s husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years and after his death the bank seized all the property of Frances Price. With his vast inheritance gone, the close-to-penniless widow and her directionless son, Malcolm, are left with only few options. They sell everything and cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris, with a cat named Small Frank who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’s dead husband.
