“Forgive me if I wander a little this evening, for I have been all day employ'd in a very abstract Poem and I am in deep love with you—two things which must excuse me.”
THIS FEBRUARY: We are expressing our ever growing devotion to our loyal audience through the lost art of letter writing. The Paradise Presents LOVE LETTERS: Cinema of Correspondence. Calling all Valentines for seven love stories that breed, build, or break in hand written notes.
LUST. SEDUCTION. REVENGE. THE GAME AS YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE. The romantic takes a turn for the sinister for our next film in the series. Based on the classic novel, adapted by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Stephen Frears, featuring an all-star cast of Glenn Close, John Malkovich, and Michelle Pfeiffer- it's DANGEROUS LIAISONS.
The Marquise de Merteuil (Glenn Close) and the Vicomte de Valmont (John Malkovich) display the petty jealousies and jaded insouciance of life in France's royal court in the 18th century, casually ruining the lives of de Merteuil's young romantic rival (Uma Thurman), the music teacher (Keanu Reeves) for whom she secretly pines and the upstanding Madame de Tourvel (Michelle Pfeiffer). But when actual romantic feelings begin to surface, their games take on a more treacherous air.
