“The director Emmanuel Mouret manipulates our sympathies effortlessly as the story zigzags its way to an ultimately surprising and quite satisfying resolution.” – Helen T. Verongos, THE NY TIMES


“Anyone who loves “Dangerous Liaisons” – in any of its iterations – should rush to cue up “Lady J,” a period romance with a similarly wicked sense of comic melodrama. ” – Noel Murray, LOS ANGELES TIMES


1750, Louis XV reigns over the kingdom of France. The Marquis des Arcis (Edouard Baer), an assumed libertine, falls madly in love with Madame de La Pommeraye (Cécile de France), an attractive widow withdrawn from the world. She resists him for years, and finally gives in to her secret desire. Yet the Marquis quickly tires of her and proposes after two short years to split remaining good friends. Mad with sorrow, the vengeful Madame sets about orchestrating her revenge, with the beautiful, young Mademoiselle de Joncquières (Alice Isaaz) as her instrument.
