The Red and the Black

1997 NR

Director Jean-Daniel Verhaeghe helms this glittering costume drama set in Restoration-era France, following the efforts of an ambitious young peasant (Kim Rossi Stuart) to transcend his humble roots by joining the ranks of high society. But will the cost of social climbing bear a price that's far too dear? Carole Bouquet, Judith Godreche, Claude Rich, Bernard Verley and Constanze Engelbrecht lead the strong supporting cast.
