Queen To Play
OscarÂ®-winner Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda) and the luminous Sandrine Bonnaire (La CÃ©rÃ©monie) square off in this stylish and sophisticated dramedy of newfound passions and mid-life triumphs, set on the postcard-perfect isle of Corsica.
Lovely, repressed and quietly intelligent, French chambermaid HÃ©lÃ¨ne (Bonnaire) comes upon a couple (The L Word's Jennifer Beals and Marie Antoinette's Dominic Gould) engaged in an intensely sensual chess match, and discovers she has a knack for the game. This obsession, much to the chagrin of her husband and teenage daughter, leads her to seek the clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor (Kline, in his first French-speaking
role) - a liaison that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives.
