One of my favorite books of all time Cheri by Colette has been adapted for the silver screen! *swoon* The casting looks spot on with Michelle Pfeiffer playing the exquisitely preserved courtesan Lea. Its out in limited release right now and I am despondent that there has not been more of an advertising push, if I hadn't happened to pick up the NYT Weekend Arts section I never would have discovered it! This movie will be the most visually exciting period movie since Marie Antionette. Set in Bell Epoque Paris the set design and costumes look an absolute confection in the clips shown below. I can't wait to go see this movie with a little bottle of champagne and a box of macaroons and chocolates this weekend.
