Amélie (Audrey Tatou), the heroine of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s award-winning whimsical romance, is no ordinary young woman. A waitress in a Montmartre, Paris bar, Amélie observes people and lets her imagination roam free. One day, she suddenly finds her purpose in life: to solve other people’s problems. We follow her around a lovingly and vividly photographed Paris of saturated colors, as she engineers offbeat solutions to better her deserving co-workers, relatives and neighbors’ lives…Among them the concierge who spends her day sipping port while communing with a stuffed dog; Georgette, the hypochondriac newsdealer; and the “glass man”, who lives vicariously through a Renoir reproduction. Amélie’s mission to help others is rudely interrupted when she meets a strange, off-beat young man, Nino Quincampoix (Mathieu Kassovitz), who captures her interest, and sets her on a misson to do accomplish something for herself…in the most charming and complicated way possible.

Come see a screening of AMÉLIE at The Clairidge between February 15 and February 22, 2024 and enjoy an incredible French lunch at Faubourg (special two course menu with a mimosa for $35 when you show your ticket from The Clairidge).*

*One lunch at the promotional price per ticket. Offer valid only at Faubourg and only with a movie ticket from the selected films at The Clairidge between 2/15/24–2/22/24 between 12:00pm–2:30pm.
