Green Card (1990)

Directed by
Peter Weir

This wonderful romantic comedy stars Gerard Depardieu as George Faure, a Frenchman who has been offered the job of his dreams.. but unfortunately it is in the United States, and he hasn't got a work permit (Green Card).

The easiest way to retrieve this permit (as the Americans, unlike us British, don't hand out these documents willy nilly) is to marry an American citizen.

Now enter Bronte Parrish (Andie MacDowell), a happily single New York horticulturist. Bronte has herself just run into an obstacle due to her single status. She has finally, after weeks of painful hunting, found her ideal apartment with its own greenhouse. However the building representatives only like married couples moving in.

Now a marriage of convenience seems the ideal solution to both problems. However, to convince the immigration officers they are married for love, they must move in with each other.

Now as the totally mismatched couple attempt to cope with life together, they start to fall in love. But will the immigration officers discover the foul play that had previously occurred?
