Oscar winner Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda) and the luminous Sandrine Bonnaire (Vagabond) square off in this stylish and sophisticated dramedy of newfound passions and mid-life triumphs, set on the postcard-perfect isle of Corsica. Lovely, repressed and quietly intelligent, French chambermaid Helene (Bonnaire) discovers she has a knack for chess. This obsession - much to the chagrin of her husband and teenaged daughter - leads her to seek the clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor (Kline, in his first French-speaking role) - a liaison that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives.
