According to her is a drama following Veronica, a young Russian woman who happily gives up all prospects of a brilliant career as a pianist in order to raise her son. Veronica’s choice will force her husband Paul, a New York stockbroker, to question his position among his highly ambitious circle of friends.
Paul’s cousin, Adele, who as a French bourgeoise exudes a kind of highbrow affectation that charms more than it alienates, is the storm that threatens to uproot Veronica. A high-end executive with a brilliant career and a child at a distant boarding school, Adele rages against Veronica’s choice and shakes up everything and everybody in the airtight French expatriate milieu in which the film takes place. The situation intensifies when Amanda, a competitive but charming French pianist, arrives for a concert tour in New York and falls for Paul.
