The Lady and the Duke

Legendary director Eric Rohmer (My Night at Maude's, Claire's Knee, Chloe in the Afternoon, ) spins this true tale of a beautiful royalist Englishwoman living perilously in France during the Revolution. To make matters worse (and at the same time more dramatic), she's engaged in an affectionate, sometimes tempestuous relationship with Philippe, the revolutionary Duke of Orleans. This talky, theatrical period costume drama may be too restrained for some, but the scenery (all the backgrounds are made up of digitally rendered paintings) is certainly impressive. In French with English subtitles. 129 minutes
