Oh the English. Well, actually there are quite a few American’s in this… Oh the almost-English. I almost feel like this trailer is a parody of itself. It just seems so over the top. Although Director Stephen Frears (The Queen, High Fidelity) is very good at finding the comedy in everyday situations, so perhaps it’s just the trailer and the music that is throwing me off.

The films stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathy Bates, and Rupert Friend in a romantic drama set in 1920′s Paris. The story is about “the son of a courtesan [who] retreats into a fantasy world after being forced to end his relationship with the older woman who educated him in the ways of love.”

I’m not sure what to think. Check out the trailer and let me know…

Does this appeal to you?
