A beautiful young woman (Elizabeth Olsen) is trapped in a marriage to her sickly cousin (Tom Felton) and dominated by her aunt (Jessica Lange). Passion materializes in the form of a family friend (Oscar Isaac) and leads to multiple tragedies. This dark (literally), dark (thematically) drama is set in mid-18th century Paris, when apparently, it was never sunny. The movie barely has any light moments either, choosing instead to mire itself in endless, overwrought emotion. The performances are strong (although Lange does suffer a bit too much) and it starts with promising potential, but the whole thing bogs down midway, becomes almost preposterous and just falls apart.
