Cheri staring Michelle Pfeiffer

cheri

Cheri stars Michelle Pfeiffer in Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons) adaptation of Colette’s novel about fading beauty, Lea de Lonval (Pfeiffer) and her famous courtesans. Kathy Bates plays Pfeiffer’s mother as a jolly old gossip queen and the film covers Lea’s affair with Cheri, played by Rupert Friend (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), and charts their tortured love affair and separation after he is whisked away into an arranged marriage. For those who love films with pomp French costumes and gaunt attractive toy boys, then this is for you.
