The new film "A Little Chaos" is set in France in the year 1682.

It's about plans to build a garden at the palace of Versailles. The king's landscape artist (played by actor Matthias Schoenaerts) needs someone to complete an outdoor ballroom.

He calls upon a commoner named Sabine (played by Kate Winslet) for the job, but he has concerns about her style of work.

"A Little Chaos" was directed by Alan Rickman, who also appears in the film as King Louis XIV.

He joined Take Two to talk about returning to the director's chair and taking on the role of the Sun King.
