The Princess of Montpensier

Friday, April 15 - Thursday, May 5, 2011

Tavernier (Life and Nothing But, ‘Round Midnight) turns his hand to France’s Western — the “cape and sword” swashbuckler — with this nimble tale of love and war starring some of the country’s biggest young stars. In 1562, Catholics and Protestants battle for the kingdom’s future. A beautiful young heiress in love with a duke is forced to marry a prince she’s never met. Accepting her fate, she tries to stifle her emotions, but circumstances conspire to make her the prize of a violent, passionate rivalry.
