MPAA Rating:

A French writer finds his life is once again being turned sideways by his footloose European friends in this sequel to the international hit L’Auberge Espagnole. Five years after we last saw him, Xavier has given up his aspirations of a career in international finance, but his new path as a writer isn’t going as well as he hoped, his novel about his experiences in Spain has yet to be published, and lately he’s been writing scripts for a French soap opera. When his French producers enter into a co-production agreement with a British network and Xavier lands an assignment ghost-writing a tell-all autobiography for famous fashion model Celia Shelburn, he finds himself spending plenty of time traveling between Paris and London. In London, Xavier becomes reacquainted with Wendy, whom he met during his time in Spain, and he wonders if he should take another stab at a relationship with her, Wendy is currently involved, but is increasingly frustrated with her boyfriend’s drug problems and mood swings. Xavier is also infatuated with Celia, and wonders if a dalliance with the glamorous model might be possible. Needing romantic advice, Xavier turns to another old friend, Isabelle, a lesbian who offers her understanding of women as well as a spare bedroom in her flat. Xavier also gets pointers from his ex-girlfriend Martine, who has a child from a former beau and is trying to sort out her own romantic troubles. Russian Dolls also features Kevin Bishop, reprising his role as William from the first film.
