Exclusive Clip From Cheri
Pfeiffer and Friend in the 19th century

24 April 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

It's Friday, the week's nearly over and you probably* won't get fired if you watch a quick video. So here, for your viewing pleasure, is a clip from Chéri, the new Stephen Frears film that stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Friend and Kathy Bates. Handily, this clip features all three.

The film follows a love affair between a retired courtesan, Léa (Pfeiffer) and Fred - nicknamed Chéri (Friend), the son of a former colleague and rival. Caught in the mercenary dealings of his mother (Bates), Chéri is forced to marry the beautiful and rich daughter (Felicity Jones) of yet another escort who will endow the pair with some of her ill-gotten gains. But the process renders Chéri impotent with the longing for his former mistress, whilst Léa must come to terms with being a woman "of a certain age".

The film is out on May 8, so check out the full thing then.

Dull and miserable - the new Duchess!
Iona - you're comment is spot on - count me as one of your friends... This looks like a maudlin, depressing chick flick with nice frocks and loads of angst. The Duchess was dreary enough - why do we need more manufactured misery? Isn't there enough in the world? More
