Trailer Bulletin: The Libertine

by | November 11, 2005 | Comments

Interested in a 17th century period drama about a lascivious playwright who infuriates a lot of men, seduces a lot of woman, and eventually drinks himself to death? No? How about if I told you that Johnny Depp plays the title role? Yeah, I thought that’d do it. The film is "The Libertine," and you can enjoy the all-new trailer right here.

"Johnny Depp stars as the decadent John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester. The film follows the Earl’s adventures in London, from his passionate romance with a young actress, to the writing of a scurrilous play which blisteringly and bawdily lampoons the very monarch who commissioned it, Charles II, leading to the Earl’s banishment and eventual downfall."

Also on board are John Malkovich, Samantha Morton, and Rosamund Pike. Stephen Jeffreys adapted his own play into movie format, and the film is directed by first-timer Laurence Dunsmore.

"The Libertine" opens in limited release on November 25th.
