Storyline Heading
Deep in the corridors of the Charenton Asylum, past the giggles of madmen and the clanking of chains, a writer sits, penning page after page of incendiary prose. Stories so erotic, so deeply perverse, that Napoleon himself issues an order to silence the man at any cost. The writer's name? The Marquis de Sade.

Critic's Review Heading
Very Good
The thought that most immediately comes to mind with the mention of the Marquis de Sade is sex--not just any sex, but the most torrid, kinky acts of fornication imaginable. Yet Philip Kaufman's provocative account of the infamous 19th Century French writer's final days is titled Quills, and the reason is simple: this powerful version of Sade's story is one ultimately not about sensationalistic salaciousness, but the power--and price--of self-expression.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Deep in the corridors of the Charenton Asylum, past the giggles of madmen and the clanking of chains, a writer sits, penning page after page of incendiary prose. Stories so erotic, so deeply perverse, that Napoleon himself issues an order to silence the man at any cost. The writer's name? The Marquis de Sade.

The notorious Marquis (GEOFFREY RUSH) whose blasphemous writings are encouraged by a God-fearing priest, Abbe de Coulmier (JOAQUIN PHOENIX), who believes in curing the insane through his humanistic principles. As Coulmier urges him to write, "to purge his evil thoughts upon the page," an adoring chamber maid, Madeleine LeClerc (KATE WINSLET) abets the Marquis' cause and smuggles the scandalous writings out of the asylum for publication. Both risk everything for this wicked genius, until a new doctor (MICHAEL CAINE) arrives at Charenton hell-bent on "curing" the Marquis of his nasty writing habit by any means necessary.
