"Children of the Century"
Directed by Diane Kurys
The torrid love affair between 19th century writer
George Sand aka Baroness Dudevant (Juliette Binoche) and poet Alfred de
Musset (Benoit Magimel) is explored in this period piece from French
director Diane Kurys. Fuelled by impulsive bursts of creativity, passion,
and emotion, the lovers created a scandal in Parisian literary circles for
their wild abandonment of social mores, both in their writings and in their
affair. "An intimate contemplation of two marvelously messy lives" (Andrew
Sarris, New York Observer). French with English subtitles.
