Also continuing to show at the Ross is “French Exit.”

Showing through April 15, “French Exit” offers proof that even the most caustic characters can be made entertaining and even relatable. The film features Michelle Pfeiffer as Frances Price, a 60-year-old Manhattan socialite who fails in her plan to “die before the money ran out.”

Her husband, Franklin, has been dead for 12 years and with his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris. She is accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm (Lucas Hedges) and a cat named Small Frank — who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’ dead husband.

“French Exit” is rated R. Show times are available on the Ross website or by calling 402-472-5353.
