The beautiful and very charming Virginia Ledoyen literally appears in every
frame of this enchanting new film from France. It's just as well because you
can't take your eyes off her in this story about Valerie, a young woman who
meets her boyfriend in a Paris cafe, reveals that she's pregnant and sets off
to her first day at work as a room service waiter in a four star hotel.Over
the course of the day she meditates on the paths of human nature she crosses,
sometimes comic, sometimes hostile - which leads her to an unusual decision.
A SINGLE GIRL is just now beginning its U.S. theatrical engagements and the
critics all agree...
"A SINGLE GIRL should make an international star out of Virginia
Ledoyen...Here is the modern maiden warrior, a Joan of Arc who fights only
for herself but whose honor is unmistakable." -David Denby, NY Magazine
"...dazzling...A SINGLE GIRL is so buoyant, sharp-eyed and casually sexy it
comes closer than any recent movie to capturing the essence of youth itself."
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times
