I thought I had seen this movie back in the 80's but I think I would have remembered this. Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer and Uma Therman in the 1700s in France. Lots of psychological game playing, seduction and deceit. Brilliant acting and a very young Keanu Reeves.
Favorite Quote: When it comes to marriage, one man is as good as the next. And even the least accommodating is less trouble than a mother.
Trivia: Alan Rickman, who played Vicomte de Valmont in the Broadway version, was offered to reprise the role for the film, but turned it down to make Die Hard, which was released a year later.
Awards: 3 Oscars
Would Jessica Like This Movie? Period pieces kinda bug her.
Next Movie: Melvin And Howard
