Movie Review: Quills

Quills (2000) C+

Can't say I really knew much about the Marquis de Sade. Didn't know that's where the term sadism orginated... Had a good group of actors like Kate Winslet and Joaquin Phoenix. I guess I was kind of in shock during the first 30 minutes from the sex and violence. One wonders whether early 1800s France was really so brutal and sexual. The story eventually got interesting but I still had that bad taste from the beginning... Heidi couldn't watch it because of the 2-3 rape scenes. You really get to see how bad women were treated all those years ago. I don't really see how the critics all loved it.
