Alan Rickman directs Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts and himself in this period drama where two talented landscape artists become romantically entangled while building a garden in King Louis XIV’s palace at Versailles.
Handsome and with plenty of generous acting beats – yet the central romance element is the least interesting thing here and the movie could probably trundle on without it, just be about fancy gardening. Strangely structured (not a criticism).
