17th century France: Landscaper Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet) is chosen by the king’s maître landscaper André Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts) to build a new garden. King Luis XIV (Alan Rickman) wishes to give his Versailles palace a park of never seen brilliance. While Sabine is drawn deeper into the court’s schemes the feelings for her married boss André grow stronger.
A LITTLE CHAOS is Alan Rickman’s second work as a director. The empathetic period movie enthralls with its baroque glamour and it stars. While Oscar®-winner Kate Winslet gives a performance as a strong woman in a male dominated world Matthias Schoenaerts shows his gentle side and Rickman himself stars as King Luis XIV.
