EXCLUSIVE: Cohen Media Group will be releasing Driving Madeleine, the next movie from Oscar-nominated director Christian Carion’s (Joyeux Noel), on Jan. 12, 2024 in limited release.
Written and directed by Carion, and starring Line Renaud (Dirty Money, Cop or Hood) and Dany Boon (Nothing to Declare, Family is Family, Murder Mystery), Driving Madeleine follows the unlikely friendship of a struggling taxi driver and an elderly passenger on a heartfelt journey through Paris. A seemingly simple taxi ride evolves into a profound meditation on the realities of the driver, whose personal life is in shambles, and his fare, an elderly woman whose warmth belies her shocking past.
