A charming young man comes to Paris and immediately falls in love. he’s a moral zero with an unmatched gift for stretching the truth. In no time he’s spinning amazing yarns and sending his love play into outer space. This zesty new adaptation of a French classic is like springtime in Paris—full of wit, elegant dresses, fancy lace, a twisting plot, lies of genius and true love at last.
