Kate Winslet stars as the widowed Sabine De Barra, whose special talent in landscape design lands her a job working on the gardens of Versailles with King Louis XIV’s landscape architect, André Le Nótre. Matthias Schoenaerts co-stars as Le Nótre, while Alan Rickman, Stanley Tucci and Danny Webb round out the rest of the main cast.

Rickman, as you might have guessed by the picture at the top of the story, not only reigns behind the camera, but also in front of it, appearing in the rather fitting role of Louis the Great.
