​MK2 boards ‘The Young Lovers’ starring Fanny Ardant and Melvil Poupaud (exclusive)

Romantic drama will challenge societal norms.

Paris-based mk2 films has boarded sales on Carine Tardieu’s upcoming romantic drama The Young Lovers, starring Fanny Ardant opposite Melvil Poupaud as a 70-year-old woman who embarks on an affair with a married doctor 25 years her junior.

“It’s a modern and nuanced drama where love defies society’s standards,” said mk2 films sales chief Fionnuala Jamison.

Ardant plays an elegant, retired architect whose path crosses with a happily married doctor in his 40s, who first made an impression on her in a brief meeting 15 years previously.

Both are quite troubled to meet again and begin an affair.
