Stephen Frears, director of THE QUEEN and HIGH FIDELITY, continues to demonstrate his genre-defying talent with this adaptation of a Colette novel. Set in Paris in the years before World War I, CHERI paints a picture of the romance between young Ch?ri (Rupert Friend) and retired courtesan L?a (Michelle Pfeiffer). Ch?ri’s mother (Kathy Bates), a rival of L?a, plots to separate the pair by arranging a marriage between her son and Edm?e (Felicity Jones). Screenwriter Christopher Hampton previously collaborated with the director on DANGEROUS LIAISONS.
