Who knew landscape gardening could be such a cutthroat biz? In "A Little Chaos," Kate Winslet stars as a female landscape artist who's recruited to work on King Louis XIV's majestic garden at Versailles. Sabine De Barra is a rather unorthodox choice, and not just because her slightly wild floral style clashes with the fancy French standard. As a woman and someone from a lower class than most of the people she'll encounter at Versailles, Sabine sticks out like a sore (green) thumb, but maybe that's part of her charm. It certainly seems to interest the head landscape architect André Le Nôtre, played by Matthias Schoenaerts.
Severus Snape himself, Alan Rickman, stars in and directs this period piece, which promises tons of eye candy and romance. Stanley Tucci also co-stars, with a wardrobe that would make Caesar Flickerman envious.
"A Little Chaos" hits theaters on March 27, 2015.
