Quills images the final days of history's most infamous sexual adventurer, the Marquis de Sade. A nobleman with a literary flair, the Marquis lives in a madhouse where a beautiful laundry maid (Winslet) smuggles his erotic stories to a printer, defying orders from the asylum's resident priest (Phoenix). The titillating passages whip all of France into a sexual frenzy, until a fiercely conservative doctor (Caine) tries to put an end to the fun, inadvertently stoking the excitement to a fever pitch. Featuring a cast that includes Academy Award® winner Geoffrey Rush, Oscar nominee Kate Winslet, rising star Joaquin Phoenix, and Academy Award® winner Michael Caine, Quills playfully turns Sade’s story into a sexy, sinister and shattering tale he himself might have written.

    I only wanted to watch this film to see some more of Kate Winslets work and wasn’t really expecting a lot but to my pleasant surprise it was amazing. It’s funny, sinister and keeps you glued throughout. Some amazing acting as well. Very pleased I brought this film!

    This movie keeps you entertained from start to finish. The dialogue is deliciously saucy and excellently performed by all the main characters. The supporting characters are excellently cast. This movie is value for money that, if purchased, will be enjoyed over and over again!
