A Little Chaos
Certificate: 12A
Starring: Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alan Rickman, Stanley Tucci
Director: Alan Rickman
Running time: 117 minutes
Genre: Comedy/Drama/Romance
Fall in love with this sumptuous costume drama. In his second turn behind the camera, director Alan Rickman explores the love story between two talented landscape artists (Winslet and Schoenaerts), who become romantically entangled while building a garden in King Louis XIV’s (Rickman) palace at Versailles. Beautifully shot and wonderfully dressed, this will be right up your street if you enjoyed other recent period films like Suite Française, which was released last month and also starred Schoenaerts.

A Little Chaos is out now on general release and playing at The Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks and The Picture House Uckfield
