A Little Chaos

Drama. Two talented landscape artists begin a romance while building a garden in King Louis XIV's palace at Versailles.

1680s France. Sabine de Barra's designs for part of the gardens of Versailles cause taciturn landscape architect Andre Le Notre to take an interest in her fresh outlook. Though Sabine is not afraid to get her hands dirty, her introduction to the muddied morality of the royal court of Louis XIV proves much harder work, with secrets and sadness buried just beneath the surface glamour.

Sumptuous historical drama from BBC Films, inspired by true events.
