Bel-Ami Alert: Rob Pattinson Seduces in a Top Hat

Hungary stands in for Paris -- effectively, no?

As I’ve already made clear, I’m pretty eager to see the film version of Guy de Maupassant’s Bel-Ami. It’s a book I love (serial seduction in 1885 Paris!) and the casting is delicious, with Robert Pattinson as Georges Du Roy and Cristina Ricci, Uma Thurman, and Kristin Scott Thomas as three of his, um, targets. The trailer even includes a shot of the scene where Du Roy hits on Scott Thomas’ character in church! Dastardly!  Release set for March 2.

I spend most of my time writing and reading. Most recent publications: the reissue of "To Marry an English Lord,"one of the inspirations for "Downton Abbey," and the historical novel "Leaving Van Gogh." I am too cranky to belong to a book group but I love the book-blogging community.
