Our tribute to the late Alan Rickman. Two talented landscape artists fall in love while building a garden in King Louis XIV’s palace at Versailles in the year 1682. Passion is in their nature. Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet), a strong-willed and talented landscape designer, fulfils her dreams in the gardens of France. Sabine is in the running for an assignment at the court of King Louis XIV (Alan Rickman). When he meets her, the King’s renowned landscape artist André Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts) is disturbed by Sabine’s distinctive eye and forward-thinking nature, but he eventually chooses Sabine to build one of the main gardens at the Sun King’s new Palace of Versailles.

We say : A film that disappeared from our screens a little too quickly when first released and has been selected by Bella as our tribute to the late and much loved Alan Rickman (watch for his captivating close-ups where he communicates volumes while barely moving a muscle).
