Alias Betty Review


Excellent
You're a famous novelist and your son dies tragically. What does your chemically iffy mother do? She kidnaps a lookalike baby and gives him to you.

The older couple and the younger couple drift apart because of the old man's wandering eye -- and who can blame him? And Lili sees a career boost in the old man, whereas the young director (Robinson Stévenin) is still working through his experimental -- and awful -- phase of filmmaking.
