It is turn of the century in Belle Epoque Paris and a scandalous romp is underfoot. The sensational tale begins as the ravishing Lea (Michelle Pfeiffer) contemplates retirement from her renowned stature as Paris s most envied seductress to the rich and famous. Her plans are cut short when she is approached by a former courtesan and arch rival, the barb-throwing gossip Charlotte Peloux (Kathy Bates), who encourages Lea to teach her disaffected 19 year-old son a bon vivant nicknamed Ch ri (Rupert Friend) a thing or two about women. The resulting escapades involve power struggles over sex, money, age and society and unexpectedly, love itself as a boy who refuses to grow up collides with a woman who realizes she cannot stay young forever. Director Stephen Frears ( The Queen ) and screenwriter Christopher Hampton ( Atonement ) reunite ( Dangerous Liaisons ) to playfully bring Colette s unconventional romance, CHERI, to the screen.
