Acclaimed filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier (Round Midnight, Life and Nothing But) brings us The Princess of Montpensier a full-blooded tale of passion, romance and intrigue.
Set in the high courts of 16th Century France, where the wars of religion between Catholics and Protestants are raging. Marie de Mézières (Mélanie Thierry), a beautiful young aristocrat, is in love with Henri de Guise (Gaspard Ulliel), but her hand in marriage is promised to the Prince of Montpensier (Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet). Being the dutiful daughter Marie consents to marry the prince and put aside her childish fantasy for the roguish Henri. However, wherever Marie goes attention follows, and soon enough her path crosses with Henri once more.
