WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Transported from 17th Century Paris to modern-day London, Alceste (Damian Lewis) is a famous British playwright, disillusioned and angry with the hypocrisy, shallowness and vanity of the contemporary world. Vowing to reject society, Alceste's plans are derailed when he falls madly in love with Jennifer (Keira Knightley). An ambitious American film star and darling of the social scene, she may prove to be his biggest challenge yet.
