A Little Chaos

In 1682 the the King’s renowned landscape artist André Le Notre chooses Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet) to build one of the main gardens at the new Palace of Versailles.

Along the way Sabine De Barra has to learn to negotiate the perilous rivalries and intricate etiquette of the French court where Jennifer Ehle features as Madame De Montespan, the King’s maîtresse-en-titre, although the real La Montespan had already fallen from favour by then as a consequence of the l’affaire des poisons.
