A batch of new images from the adaptation of Guy De Maupassant’s 1885 novel Bel Ami have gone online. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, and Kristin Scott Thomas and centers on a man who uses his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth in 1890’s Paris. The images feature Pattinson in passionate embrace with both Thurman and Ricci (you dog, you), so I’m expecting the film to be chock full of Pattinson’s bedroom eyes.
Hit the jump to see the images. Directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, Bel Ami is currently without a U.S. release date.
Here’s the synopsis:
Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy (Pattinson), who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitute’s embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.
