50 is the New 30 (Marie-Francine)

Valérie Lemercier directs, co-writes and stars as her comedy's titular character, a middle-aged woman starting over after a break-up and redundancy.

When Marie-Francine is dumped by her husband and loses her job in the same week, she moves in with her overbearing parents and opens a e-cigarette boutique. Soon she meets a chef named Miguel (Patrick Timsit), who she discovers harbours some embarrassing secrets of his own. But, still, he might be the perfect someone to help her lift her sagging spirit.
