Overview
Academy Award® winners* Geoffrey Rush and Michael Caine join Oscar® nominees** Kate Winslet and Joaquin Phoenix in this provocative film filled with delicious desire and wicked wit.

Rush gives a tour-de-force performance as history's most infamous sexual adventurer, the Marquis de Sade. A nobleman with a literary flair, the Marquis lives in a madhouse where a beautiful laundry maid (Winslet) smuggles his erotic stories to a printer, defying orders from the asylum's resident priest (Phoenix). The titillating passages whip all of France into a sexual frenzy, until a fiercely conservative doctor (Caine) tries to put an end to the fun, inadvertently stoking the excitement to a fever pitch.

*Rush: 1996 Best Actor, Shine – Caine: 1999 Best Supporting Actor, The Cider House Rules. **Winslet: 1997 Best Actress, Titanic – Phoenix: 2000 Best Supporting Actor, Gladiator.
