Children of the Century

Directed by Diane Kurys • 1999 • France
Starring Juliette Binoche, Benoît Magimel, Karin Viard

The torrid love affair between two of nineteenth-century France’s most renowned—and scandalous—literary figures is brought to sumptuous life in this ravishing historical romance. George Sand (Juliette Binoche) is a celebrated writer known as much for her gender-bending, bohemian lifestyle as for her daring, protofeminist novels. Alfred de Musset (Benoît Magimel) is a poet with a reputation as a dandy and a womanizer. Their passionate, stormy relationship will take them from the salons of Paris to the canals of Venice and inspire the creation of some of their most enduring masterpieces.
