Club "As shot by the expert Darius Khondji, CHERI makes the most of its real-life French locations and settings....Pfeiffer and Friend also have excellent on-screen chemistry."Los Angeles Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "With Pfeiffer, 50, radiating uncommon beauty, grace and feeling, Frears uncovers a fragile story's grieving heart."Rolling Stone "[T]his November-May romance is set in an elegant Paris during the turn of the last century.
