'LITTLE CHAOS' FIRST TRAILER
KATE WINSLET AT ALAN RICKMAN'S KING LOUIS XIV COURT
Here's something we've been anxiously waiting for - first trailer for Kate Winslet's period drama LITTLE CHAOS which comes out next March with Kate playing Sabine, 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 XIVs (Alan Rickman, who is also directing the movie) new palace at Versailles. This causes her to become professionally and romantically entangled with the courts renowned landscape architect André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts)!
Manu certainly has the "broody" look that is Allanon's trademark. Oh, how I love that horse shot of Manu. Very nice morning wake up Dezzy :)ReplyDelete
I knew miladies would like the rider of the horse :) I shall have another dashing horseman here this weekend, stay tuned :)Delete
Kate Winslet as always is brilliant at whatever role she is in so this movie is definitely a must for me. I was just watching 2 old film of hers the other day, Little Children and The Reader, big contrasts to this.ReplyDelete
Those two are my fave movies of hers! And both are also on my top 20 best films ever list :)Delete
I'd watch Alan Rickman in anything.ReplyDelete
Then it will be a treat for you :) The cast is quite lovely!Delete
"Save a horse, ride a cowboy" - a very popular country song, I find appropriate for your gift of the stallion!ReplyDelete
Rickman carries me far away with that voice(sigh). It's going to be a naughty film! Promise, Dezzy?!!!
You can't help but wonder who was feeling more weird, the rider or the horse up in that pic :)Delete
Don't think it will be naughty, more of a drama, not even comedy. They're ever so serious in the trailer.
I returned for another peek at the lovely white horse, a-hem... and you've posted a song, sung by Kate Winslet! What a lovely voice and song.Thank you - I enjoyed that!Delete
isn't she as stunning as a singer as she is as an actress? Some actors really have amazing voices and I'd love to see them recording an album, from Kate to Ewan McGregor, Luke Evans and Catherine Zeta Jones (who had a single before she started acting career) :)Delete
Absolutely!! Was it, "All That Jazz," that Zeta danced & sang in? (Gangster movie.) She was great!Delete
no, not CHICAGO part, she really had a music single before she started acting. She started as a singer in UK, and the song is actually quite nice given it's from twenty years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJHsGfM-4egDelete
LITTLE CHAOS looks absolutely spectacular. Love Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman - who will always be Severus Snape to me :)ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that Kate is currently having a year of such warm and fun little films such as LITTLE CHAOS and DRESSMAKERDelete
I love Manu, but in the Hobbit movies he is CGI.ReplyDelete
That horse is very distracting. ;-)
I thought he was wearing a huge mask in HOBBIT... it is still him :)Delete
And so many expressions come upon ones mind about horse when you see that photo :)
WHOA! Naked guy on a horse. I don't think I saw anything after that!ReplyDelete
be welcome :)Delete
Now that's an interesting shot of manu... (giggle)ReplyDelete
That photo really lives up to his name… Man-oooohhh. LOL. :DReplyDelete
well noticed :)Delete
Ok, I am probably in the minority here, but no. No naked men on horses. It just isn't sexy. I have no problem with naked ladies on them, but men? No :PReplyDelete
maybe a naked man on a motorbike for you?Delete
No. Only in my bed ;)Delete
well that doesn't leave many options to Jason :)Delete
I love Kate.ReplyDelete
Wow, didn't expect that horse shot. I love the first pic. Manu is handsome.
Kate is the queen!Delete
Poor horse... It'd just taken a proper bath....ReplyDelete
I wouldn't really mindDelete
Hahaha! Naughty as ever...Delete
