Bel Ami – Out on DVD and Blu-ray now…

Robert Pattinson (Twilight saga, Cosmopolis) steps out of the emo shadows and brings his cheekbones and serious acting chops to the world of costumed drama. Pattinson’s rather dim ex-solder Georges returns from war to 1890s Paris with a vague notion of getting cash. Hooking up with notable society ladies Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci, he gets rich and has lots of sex but seems curiously befuddled by it all. Closely resembling the superior Dangerous Liaisons, Bel Ami, although enjoyable in patches, has got the looks but not the wit.
