Exclusive Interviews: Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman talk A Little Chaos
17 years after making his directorial debut, Alan Rickman returns to the director's chair with A LITTLE CHAOS, a period piece centering around the building of one of Louis XIV's gardens at his palace in Versailles. Rickman himself plays the stuffy King, while Kate Winslet plays the (invented) character of Sabine De Barra, a simple landscaper tasked with impressing the King with her work. In the process, she falls in love with regal fellow landscaper Andre Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts), who she fears may be out of her league.
A LITTLE CHAOS is a reunion for Rickman and Winslet, who both starred in 1995's SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, and I was lucky enough to talk to both of them last week about the film. Rickman and I talk about his return behind the camera after all these years, casting Winslet and if he's caught the directing bug, while WInslet and I discuss her tackling of the character, the dynamic between her and Rickman and whether or not she plans on directing in the near future.
A LITTLE CHAOS opens in limited theaters this week.
