My Piece of the Pie is a French film that’s been making the film festival rounds to pretty good reviews. Karin Viard plays a single mother in France who loses her job at a local factory when it gets shut down. With three children to raise she enrolls herself in a housekeeper training program and lands a position as a maid for Steve (Gilles Lellouche), a power broker. Viard gains more when Steve hires her to watch his son for a few weeks.
It’s the common theme of a blue collar up and comer finding the humanity in a rich, seemingly heartless individual.
My Piece of the Pie will see a limited release in New York on December 9. There doesn’t seem to be a wider release scheduled yet.
