I have seen this movie before I ordered it....naturally I will watch anything with Geoffrey Rush in it, but I believe every cast member in this movie really did a stellar job! The subject of the Marquis de Sade is always fascinating to me, although much of his history has become modern legend more than facts, and Rush was outstanding as his character. Humor and drama mix well in this movie and it's a great story!

"Quills" has an all-star cast, and it captures the darkness of the time of Napoleon and the French Revolution. It is also current in its exploration of religion, psycology, morals and freedom of speech. That said, I would tell you it isn't for the squeamish, and I could live the rest of my life without some of the graphic images seared in my brain. Not for the faint of heart.......
