    Michaelmas Week 2

    In the degenerate opulence of eighteenth century France, the magnetic and
    manipulative Vicomte de Valmont and his former lover La Marquise de
    Merteuil are locked in a convoluted and calculating game of sexual conquest
    and emotional sadism.

    Seeking diversion from the ennui that even their customary sexual intrigues
    and emotional perversions cannot alleviate, the two conspire to corrupt and
    destroy the fifteen-year-old Cecile, who is barely out of her convent.
    Meanwhile, Valmont also seeks prey more worthy of his talent and
    reputation; Madame de Tourvel, happily married and famous for her strict
    morals and religious fervour, would be his greatest coup.

    Thus, the two masterful chess-players manipulate their pawns for their own
    sadistic pleasure. But as the stakes rise ever higher, there emerges from
    beneath a veneer of frivolity, an intense emotional power struggle and the
    ultimate tragedy.
