A Little Chaos received rave reviews at 2014 festival Toronto International Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival, and now HELLO! Online have an exclusive clip of the Kate Winslet period drama. The film, directed by Alan Rickman, reimagines the creation of the Rockwork Grove, one small part of what was to become Louis XIV’s magnificent Palace of Versailles.


Kate stars as Madame Sabine De Barra, a little known architect who find thats her gender also holds her back from success. A fan of modern styles and techniques, Sabine soon finds herself hired by the famous architect Le Nôtre (played by Matthias Schoenaerts), a man who is known for classic work.


In the clip, as Le Nôtre shows Sabine the land which will hold her architecture, the two come to an understanding with each other.

"Master, why me?" asks Sabine, as Le Notre leaves her with the final plans. "These gardens should be large to embrace voices other than my own", he replies.

As Sabine works on her creation, she finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Le Nôtre - but also has to come to terms with the rivalries and intricate etiquette of the court of King Louis XIV (played by Alan Rickman.)
