Valmont (Special Edition)
Directed by Milos Forman
Legendary filmmaker Miloš Forman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus, Man on the Moon) takes on the classic novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses in this delectable thriller starring Colin Firth (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Annette Bening (American Beauty) and Meg Tilly (Masquerade). In 18th-century France, a cold and calculating playboy, Valmont (Firth), makes a malicious wager with the equally wicked Madame de Merteuil (Bening): Valmont must dishonor the married Madame de Tourvel (Tilly) by sleeping with her. If Valmont succeeds, he gets the privilege of Merteuil’s bed as well. But when Valmont sets out on his task, the unexpected happens...he falls in love with Tourvel. And now Merteuil will stop at nothing to destroy Valmont’s newfound passion. Co-written by Jean-Claude Carrière (Belle de Jour) and co-starring Fairuza Balk (The Craft), Siân Phillips (Dune), Jeffrey Jones (Ed Wood), Henry Thomas (E.T.) and Vincent Schiavelli (Man on the Moon), the sumptuous Valmont spins an exquisitely entertaining tale of cruel intentions and savage seductions.
