A LITTLE CHAOS
12A, 117mins. Opens Friday
Alan Rickman, Kate Winslet
A delightfully rich and lush period romance, with Alan Rickman wearing the director's hat and playing the lead role of the French Sun King, Louis XIV.
But his wonderfully nuanced character is not the core of the film - instead it is the story of garden designer Madame Sabine De Barra (Winslet) and her growing relationship with renowned architect Andre Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts), who is commissioned to oversee the gardens at Versailles. It is a classy romantic drama, brimming with lovely performances.
