Cousin Bette


USA 1997, 104 minutes
Dir. Des McAnuff
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy

Topics: Period - 1700s.


Aroview: Well-upholstered tale of malice and revenge in pre-revolutionary Paris follows buoyantly in the tradition of bodice-ripping comedies like DANGEROUS LIAISONS and RIDICULE. Based on Honore de Balzac's novel, this merrily parades the backfiring effects of snobbery as mocked and unmarried Jessica Lange (in her most engaging role in years) spitefully turns the tables on her repressive aristocratic family - Elizabeth Shue and Aidan Young among them.
