Paul and Michelle is a 1974 drama film directed and produced by Lewis Gilbert, whose story Vernon Harris and Angela Huth dramatized. It is a sequel to the 1971 film Friends, by the same director and with the same lead actors.[1]


Taking place approximately three years after the events in Friends, Paul and Michelle follows the family of Paul Harrison (Sean Bury) and Michelle Latour (Anicée Alvina) after they have been reunited. At the beginning of the film Paul finishes prep school and he informs his father (whom he still has not forgiven for separating him from Michelle and their child) that he plans to look for Michelle and now because he is a legal adult he can no longer stop him. Paul has to cope with the difficulties he faces balancing work, college, and trying to maintain their family as well as a new love interest for Michelle.

The actor portraying Paul's father, Ronald Lewis, went on to receive a knighthood, this role was Lewis's last feature film appearance.[citation needed]
