The Misadventures of Margaret

A Feature film by Brian Skeet

Release in France : 23/12/1998


    Margaret is a writer whose safe, orderly existence and seven-year marriage to a professor of English come apart at the seams when she embarks on the translation of a journal in which an 18th-century Frenchman describes the emotional and sexual emancipation of a girl he has seduced. Her work raises questions and fantasies in Margaret’s mind, whipping her life into a crazy whirlwind that engulfs her husband, family and friends.

    When I first read Rameau’s Niece, I felt it was a delicious combination of a rather broad satire of the New York cultural elite and eighteenth century erotic farce. I was struck by how much it reminded me of the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 40s — films which had wit, humor and strong female protagonists who were glamorous and sexy and intelligent and independent .
