Additional Info

Choices is a valentine to the theatre. The leading characters are reminiscent of the Guitrys. Lucien Guitry was a legendary stage star in Paris, and his son, Sacha, was a popular actor and writer of Boulevard comedies. Henri (read Sacha Guitry) is facing a crisis. He's apprehensive about producing his first tragedy, which he's dedicating to his father. In addition to that, he's concerned about his son. The young man has agreed to appear in this new play, yet seems to have no interest in carrying on the family's theatrical tradition.
