A LITTLE CHAOS
FRI 20 SEPT @ 10.30AM | Arc Cinema | $12/$10

Sabine de Barra (Kate Winslet), a fiercely independent and talented landscape designer, is chosen to build one of the main gardens at Versailles for King Louis XIV (Alan Rickman). In her new position, she challenges gender and class barriers while also becoming entangled - professionally and romantically - with the court's renowned landscape artist (Matthias Schoenaerts).
Winslet gives a winning, charismatic performance in this highly entertaining period drama, her character injecting emotional honesty and creative chaos into an aristocratic milieu ruled by hypocrisy and convention.
'Rickman directs with a sense of compassion and enthusiam for the subject and really gets the best out of his excellent cast' - Screen Daily
