Paris, Modigliani & MeUnknown - 2015
A summer in Paris as a nanny should be a dream job for 18-year-old Julie, but it feels more like a consolation prize after not getting into the Art Institute of Chicago, her dream school. Her mom wants her to come back to Texas and attend a state college in the fall, but Julie isnt sure what she wants anymore. Being a nanny to lively, fashion-minded Genevieve turns out to be fun and good for meeting a trio of intriguing guys. Also, Genevieves mother Claire manages an art gallery and Julie gets drawn into the Paris art scene. The situation heats up when a new, previously unknown work by Modigliani, one of Julies favorite artists, is discovered and acquired by the gallery. Julies affections are pulled in different directions while she tries to discover if the new Modigliani is real or a forgery, or painted by Modiglianis mistress, Jeanne Hebuterne. Can the story of Modigliani and Jeanne provide any clues that will help guide her own path?
