Dangerous Liaisons

The game of conquest is underway. Anything goes when a predatory, wealthy widow (Glenn Close) challenges a notorious rake (John Malkovich) to seduce a beautiful young newlywed (Michelle Pfeiffer). But this time, a cardinal rule will be broken: two players will fall in love – with tragic results. 

This acclaimed winner of three Academy Awards® boasts grand 18th-century sets and costumes. But its characters could step into the 20th-century without missing a beat. Directed by Stephen Frears from a scandalous 1782 novel and Christopher Hampton’s compelling 1986 play, “Dangerous Liaisons” is “nasty, decadent fun; the surprise is how much anguished emotion seeps through its cool marble heart”.
