Ben Affleck wasn't sure the French would get the jokes in "Gone Baby Gone," a story of two private detectives searching for an abducted 4-year-old girl in the seamy side of Boston, so he was almost speechless after the film got a standing ovation from the Deauville Film Festival audience.
"They really seemed to like it," Affleck said Wednesday. "It was the first time anyone saw it, and I didn't know how the jokes about parties in Lynn being better than parties in Everett would play subtitled in French. Or the ones about stealing jet skis and going up to New Hampshire. But even if they didn't get it, they still seemed to appreciate it."
