Geoffrey Rush is the Marquis de Sade - writer of many pornographic tales and stuck in a mental institution. Kate Winslet is the laundry maid who is fascinated by him and Joaquin Phoenix is the Abbe who is infatuated by her.

I wanted to check this movie for many years and I’m rather surprised that it took me so long to get my hands on it. Anyway, fortunately, I wasn’t disappointed.

Quills is a fictional account of the last days of the Marquis de Sade, the infamous, eighteenth-century writer. Here is the archetypal clash between the establishment forces of morality and the creative spirit of a subversive artist who enjoys spitting in the face of repressive authorities. The film presents some surprising twists and turns as it examines the themes of evil and innocence, virtue and hypocrisy, freedom and self-destructiveness. Although many creative souls emphasize the importance of ordering their universe in order to create beauty, others thrive on chaos. This story explores that dimension of creativity.
