Light and frothy... more Mrs. Henderson Presents than Dangerous Liaisons as the Stephen Frears oeuvre goes.
The book has a comic edge to be a sure. This much of one? It didn't read that way to me but Colette's prose is a flexible beauty.
Rupert Friend doesn't register much in this particular trailer but Kath & Chelle look like they're having some fun with it. Best bet for Oscar nominations? I'd say Costume Design first, Kathy Bates second. One of Michelle Pfeiffer's hats actually made me gasp. If you just watched this video you already know which one.
