Plot Summary: In "The Princess of Montpensier," acclaimed filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier ("'Round Midnight") directs a spectacular cast in a riveting, lush romantic drama set in the high courts of 16th Century France. Against the backdrop of the savage Catholic/Protestant wars, Marie de Mezieres (Melanie Thierry), a beautiful young aristocrat finds herself married to a young prince (Gregoire Leprince-Ringuet), she does not love, haunted by a rakish suitor Gaspard Ulliel from her childhood, and advised by an aging nobleman Lambert Wilson, harboring his own forbidden desire for her. The Princess of Montpensier must struggle passionately to stay alive in the intrigue of this corrupt political and romantic web of duty, passion, religion and war.
