Elle s'en va

Cohen Media Group has picked up US rights to "Elle s'en va" ("On My Way") prior to its Berlin premiere. The film, directed by Emmanuelle Bercot (she wrote last year's "Polisse"), stars Catherine Deneuve, Mylene Demongeot and Claude Gensac. "Elle s'en va" is about a former beauty pageant winner (Deneuve), now a mature restaurateur, who flees on a spontaneous road trip adventure with her grandson after dealing with her failed relationship and business. A journey of self-discovery follows.

CMG previously acquired "Farewell, My Queen" from Elle Driver and released the film last year.
