A Little Chaos
It starts with a rumpled Alan Rickman in the bed, so we knew we would would like it. What is not to like? Kate Winslet, corsets and beautiful scenery. Just what us middle aged ladies like. Personally we think Alan Rickman should be king - minus the knickerbockers, crazy shoes, big ugly wig, coloured tights and over powdered face.
So in truth this is the story of an independent woman, who gains her place designing and overseeing a garden to be built at Versailles. A pleasure to look at and soak in, it just could have done with a bit more of a tighter story line. I must say it was a pleasure to watch a movie where 95% of the actors were over 30 years old and not a botoxed forehead to be seen. 4/5
