Alan Rickman directs and stars in A Little Chaos with Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Stanley Tucci and Jennifer Ehle. Rickman also co-wrote the story with Alison Deegan and Jeremy Brock. Winslet plays Madame Sabine De Barra, an unlikely candidate for landscape architect of the still‐to-be-completed Palace of Versailles. She has little time for the classical, ordered designs of the man who hires her, the famous architect Le Nôtre (Schoenaerts). However, as she works on her creation, she finds herself drawn to him as she is forced to negotiate the perilous rivalries and intricate etiquette of the court of King Louis XIV (Rickman). A Lionsgate UK and BBC Films production, it was acquired by Focus Features in Toronto where the romantic drama was the closing night gala. Lionsgate has an April 17 UK release set. Check out the trailer above.
