A 100% French film movie
The Wingwomen. This is the name of a 100% French movie which has captured the hearts of millions of viewers around the world. Directed by Mélanie Laurent for Netflix, the film also welcomes the French actress and director among its cast, where she plays one of the main roles. To accompany her in this crazy adventure, she surrounds herself with other well-known faces of French cinema whose talent no longer needs to be proven : Adèle Exarchopoulos, Isabelle Adjani, but also the revelation Manon Bresch.
In the top 10 of the Netflix rankings
The plot follows two best friends, Carole and Alex (played by Mélanie Laurent and Adèle Exarchopoulos), who also turn out to be outstanding burglars, employed for high-risk missions by the charismatic “Godmother” (played by Isabelle Adjani). But, tired of this existence on the run, and eager to regain their freedom, they accept one last mission : the theft of a painting of great value. To do this, they must team up with a newcomer, Sam, played by Manon Bresch. And obviously, nothing is going to go as planned.
