Toni Collette Chases Her Maid Through Paris in Madcap 'Madame' Clip (Exclusive)
This might be the most rich person problem of all rich people problems: In filmmaker Amanda Sthers’ Madame, Toni Collette plays Anne, a wealthy American living in Paris who plans a lavish dinner party, only to have the unimaginable happen: 13 dinner guests. After disguising her maid, Maria (played by Rossy de Palma), as an enigmatic 14th guest, Maria ends up falling for another gentleman at the party, which sends Anne spiraling.
“There’s something very strange going on with Maria, trust me,” Anne interrogates her husband (Harvey Keitel) in an exclusive clip from the comedy. “She is seeing him, Bob. This morning she came late and she looked like she’d been f**king.” What ensues is a not-so-high speed chase through the streets of Paris as Anne and Bob tail their maid. The shenanigans only get more ridiculous from there, as Anne reveals why she can’t just fire Maria: “She runs the house like clockwork. It takes at least half a day to learn how to fold my skirts alone, you know? It’s a mess. It’s a total f**king mess!”
