The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - TB

Di­rected by Alan Rick­man. Star­ring Kate Winslet, Alan Rick­man, Stan­ley Tucci, He­len McCrory, Matthias Schoe­naerts, Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the his­tor­i­cal per­son­age of An­dré Le Nôtre – the prin­ci­pal gar­dener of King Louis XIV and the brains be­hind the gar­dens at Ver­sailles – A Lit­tle Chaos casts the al­ways wel­come Schoe­naerts as the in­flu­en­tial land­scaper. He’s joined by Winslet as a wid­owed gar­dener tasked with designing a foun­tain. There is sex­ual ten­sion. Or rather, we’re told there is. Winslet and Schoe­naerts are ca­pa­ble ac­tors, but they gen­er­ate sur­pris­ingly lit­tle heat. Weak stuff. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 116 min
