|Plot Summary of The Role of Her Life |
THE ROLE OF HER LIFE (le Rôle de sa vie) was co-written and directed by François Favrat in 2004.
Claire Rocher is a would-be writer, retiring and introspective, working halftime for a women's magazine. One day, she makes the acquaintance of Elisabeth Becker, a well-known French actress, who notices and appreciates her discretion. Both women start to regularly see each other and, after a few weeks, Elisabeth asks Claire to come with her to Spain as her personal secretary. The journalist can't be happier as Elisabeth's flamboyance allows her to stay unnoticed in the shadow of the actress.
Unfortunately for Claire, Elisabeth also seduces Mathias Curval, Claire's secret love, who soon becomes the new boy-friend of the actress. Claire, who's still clouded by Elisabeth's personality, accepts this situation and goes on serving her. But Elisabeth Becker is now getting tired of Claire's obsequious servility and, paradoxically, becomes more and more angry when Claire captivates the attention of her friends.
