A Little Chaos at Owatonna Library

A Little Chaos

Academy Award winner Kate Winslet stars in this romantic drama as Sabine, a strong-willed and talented landscape designer, who is chosen to build one of the main gardens at the new palace at Versailles for King Louis XIV. In her new position of power, she challenges gender and class barriers while also becoming professionally and romantically entangled with the court's renowned landscape artist, André Le Nôtre. A Little Chaos never pretends to be a realistic historical drama. Sabine, a widowed gardener who lost her young daughter in an accident seems radically out of place and out of time.
