Here’s the first trailer and poster for A Little Chaos which is directed by none other than Alan Rickman and stars Kate Winslet, Stanley Tucci, Helen McCrory, Jennifer Ehle, Matthias Schoenaerts (who you may recognise from Rust and Bone) and the director himself. The movie re-imagines the Rockwork Grove, one small element of the Sun King, Louis XIV’s building of the magnificent Palace of Versailles.

We got to chat with Rickman at the London Film Festival, the interview is below if you missed it alongside the trailer which was released recently and the brand new poster.

A Little Chaos is set to hit UK cinema screens April 17th.

Madame Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet) is an unlikely candidate for landscape architect of the still?to-be-completed Palace of Versailles. She has little time for the classical, ordered designs of the man who hires her, the famous architect Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts). However, as she works on her creation, she finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Le Nôtre and forced to negotiate the perilous rivalries and intricate etiquette of the court of King Louis XIV (Alan Rickman). But Sabine is made of strong stuff; her honesty and compassion help her to overcome both the challenges of her newfound popularity, and an unspeakable tragedy from her past, to win the favour of the Sun King and the heart of Le Nôtre.
