Wearing a red cocktail dress, her hair in elegant chignon, Diane Lane accepted the Sarasota Film Festival’s Award for Excellence in Cinema on Saturday night, introduced by Rosanna Arquette. A screening of her new movie, Eleanor Coppola’s Paris Can Wait, followed, and a few minutes in, Lane as Anne was dressed for dinner in a romantic inn, wearing the same dress and coif, a sly nod, perhaps, to the movie’s realism. Based on Coppola’s true road trip with a business associate of her husband through the gastronomic riches of France, Lane as Coppola’s stand-in portrays the film’s central character, proper but beguiled by a Frenchman who pays more attention to her than does her work-obsessed husband. Alec Baldwin performs that role, almost a reprise of his Hal in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. In the post-screening Q&A, Lane called Baldwin a “hero,” rescuing the production after another actor pulled out. What could be bad? Three days on location in the south of France, a wet dream for any foodie.
