HOLLYWOOD ENDING ALISA LEPSELTER CUT WHAT MAY – OR MAY NOT – BE WOODY ALLEN'S LAST FILM, 'COUP DE CHANCE' Just this year, her availability realigned with Holofcener's production schedule to collaborate with her on "You Hurt My Feelings," before returning to cut Allen's 50th feature film, "Coup de Chance," his French-language suspense-drama. The film may or may not be Allen's last—he has ques- tioned his willingness to do the fundraising hustle at age 88—but Lepselter approached it no dierently than usual. The film tells the story of Fanny (Lou de Laâge), who had attended high school in New York but now lives in Paris. She runs into a novelist, Alain (Niels Schneider), who had been in love with her in high school and is writing his next book in Paris.
