WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Seductive, cunning, and deliciously wicked, Jeffrey Hatcher's adaptation of Honore de Balzac's 1846 masterpiece, Cousin Bette, tells the story of the powerful Hulot family, who inspire hate and loathing in the heart of their poor relative, a spinster named Bette. Set in Paris in mid 19th century, Bette, under the guise of concern and compassion, plots her family's destruction with the aid of a beautiful, unhappy courtesan. A tale of revenge, sexual passion and the devastating effects of violent jealousy.
