Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, two of the most charismatic stars of their respective generations, star in this charming, sophisticated comedy-mystery.

Falardeau’s latest, Monsieur Lazhar, similarly hinges on credible performances by a bunch of 10-year-olds, who are collectively devastated when their grade-six teacher hangs herself in the classroom.
