Goofs

Sabine De Barra went directly from an important interview to doing landscaping while wearing her beautiful outfit. While wearing an expensive embroidered corset, it is highly doubtful that she would have gotten it soiled with earth. She would be change into darker clothing or cover it with a dark smock.

Quotes

King Louis XIV: And what protection can the gardener afford this rose from the harsh elements of change?
Sabine De Barra: Patience, care, and a little warmth from the sun are our best hope your Majesty.

Refreshing and poignant.
8 July 2015 | by ndrhardySee all my reviews

This is not the first of Alan Rickman's work that I have seen and once again, I was not disappointed. It seems to me that movies like this are over-looked and taken for granted by audiences who's attention spans are not strong enough to appreciate the subtleties and nuances in films such as this. It isn't full of action, you have to pay attention to the details. I love how easily I was swept into the emotions of the characters. This was well acted and is the first film I've seen in awhile that made me feel like I was watching a piece of well-crafted artwork. I laughed and cried and I don't do that during just any old movie :)
