During the week I am so busy running around with the kids, that when it comes to the weekend my hubby is usually ‘forcing’ me to sit down and put my tired mama feet up. He knows I love relaxing with a good movie and as I have a soft spot for period dramas this new Kate Winslet film was the perfect pick for our Saturday movie night in:
‘A Little Chaos’ tells the story of Madame Sabine de Bara (beautifully portrayed by the lovely Kate Winslet), a talented gardener and designer who is far ahead of her time. When King Louis hires famous landscape architect Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts) to design the Versailles gardens Madame de Bara puts forward one of her revolutionary designs in the hope she can play a small part in the enormous project.
Her ideas are different, new and refreshing so, although a bit of a gamble, Le Notre hires the mysterious female gardener and they start on a journey of discovery. Strong and independent Madame de Bara is a widow still coming to terms with the loss of her husband and child, Le Notre is an unhappily married man who is unfulfilled in love. In between the hard work, the extravagant Versailles lifestyle, the expectations of others and their own grief and struggles the two gardeners manage to find each other…
‘A Little Chaos’ is available on Blu-ray ($30-$35), DVD ($20-$30) and digital download at retailers across Australia and online.
