Widow Sabine De Barra (Winslet) is a strong-willed landscape designer who challenges sexual and class barriers when she is chosen to build one of the main gardens at King Louis XIV’s new palace at Versailles, causing her to become professionally and romantically entangled with the court’s renowned landscape architect André Le Notre (Suite Française’s Schoenaerts).
Alan Rickman (who also co-stars as Louis XIV) steps back behind the camera for the first time in over 15 years for sumptuous period drama of love, loss, order, chaos and horticulture.
The screening on Wed 13 May 6.20pm is followed by a Post-screening Discussion.
