A romantic drama following Sabine (Academy Award winner Kate Winslet), a strong-willed and talented landscape designer who is chosen to build one of the main gardens at King Louis XIV’s new palace at Versailles. In her new position of power, she challenges gender and class barriers while also becoming professionally and romantically entangled with the court’s renowned landscape artist André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts).
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Rickman has created some wonderful scenes for himself to share with his Sense and Sensibility castmate Winslet.Cris Kennedy, The Canberra Times (Australia), 12.14.2015
True French historians should simply relax and enjoy a film that takes us on a beautifully photographed cinematic romp into a past as it likely SHOULD have been.Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times, 08.14.2015
"A Little Chaos" wants us to be fascinated by a feminist who never was, then undermines her by casting an approving eye on the steamy affair she begins with her boss.Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 07.01.2015
It's difficult to conjure... excitement for a mess like "A Little Chaos," a lazy and off-puttingly anachronistic feminist fantasy about an 18th-century female landscape designer who finds love while creating... one of the grandest spaces in Versailles.Inkoo Kang, TheWrap, 06.26.2015
