MOVIE REVIEW

Michelle Pfeiffer stars as a highly sought-after courtesan in Cheri, a dull and unremarkable period piece from Stephen Frears, the director of The Queen. Kathy Bates and Rupert Friend also star.
Pfeiffer is Lea de Lonval, who for years has been a high class courtesan in pre-World War I Paris. Though she's starting to get a bit older, she's still gorgeous, and her friend Madame Peloux (Bates) asks her to teach her spoiled 19-year old son Cheri (Friend) a thing or two about women. But what begins as simple sex turns into a more involved relationship, but a variety of circumstances keep their love from being fully acknowledged. Full movie review »
