Emily in Paris on Netflix (2020)

This lighthearted à l’eau de rose  American comedy is a series you might  love to hate.  Brimming over with  heavy  clichés and  the most obnoxious French stereotypes Emily in Paris  is  more of a parody and  fantasy.    Still Emily in Paris is charming and one of my Favorite French Netflix Series. Emily Cooper is suddenly catapulted from Chicago to Paris to act as a young marketing executive in an established French marketing agency.   Oblivious to the French culture and the language,  Emily will forge her way in designer pumps  or talons à aiguilles and fashion style ( in some scenes a bit à la Audrey Hepburn) and quickly create a social media buzz.

Portraying  an  ambitious, overzealous, independent American  young woman with an endearing side , we casually follow Emily’s adventures in her new life in the city of light. The episodes are short and a nostalgic way to spend a few hours in a make-believe Paris with likeable characters especially the very French work colleagues, Sylvie the boss, as well as Emily’s love interests as we get caught up in the predictable storyline.

Emily in Paris (2020), the new series from the creator of Sex and the City, Darren Star, premiered October 2 on Netflix Starring: Lily Collins, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Ashley Park, Lucas Bravo, Camille Razat.
