Robert Pattinson gives his best screen performance to date as notorious
scoundrel Georges Duroy in this handsome adaptation of the classic Guy
de Maupassant novel. In the Paris of the 1890s, Georges is a penniless,
dissolute ex-soldier. Unexpectedly thrust into high society, he quickly
discovers that the real power in Paris lies not with the men but with their wives
and mistresses. Madeleine (Uma Thurman), Virginie (Kristin Scott Thomas)
and Clotilde (Christina Ricci) are all ripe for the picking as this callous seducer
and ruthless social-climber relentlessly pursues wealth and status. There is a
hint of American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman in Pattinson’s chilling portrayal of
the creepy charmer.
