From the accomplished theater director James Lapine (Into The Woods) comesImpromptu, his directorial film debut, and one that could very well be called When Chopin Met Sand. A delightful, witty and beautifully crafted film, Impromptu brings together a number of historical figures of the arts & letters variety who trade bon mots at a breakneck pace in this effervescent romp. The ambitious, social climbing Duchess d’Antan’s (Emma Thompson, Love Actually), salon for the “artists of the moment,” brings face-to-face the wildly unconventional and recently divorced Baroness Dupin AKA author George Sand (Judy Davis, Husbands and Wives) and the object of her unbridled affection — the talented, introspective and highly sensitive composer Frederic Chopin (Hugh Grant, Four Weddings and A Funeral). These are but two shining stars in a galaxy of 19th Century glitterati that includes composer Franz Liszt (Julian Sands, A Room With A View), French poet, dramatist and author Alfred de Musset (Mandy Patinkin, Homeland) and painter Eugene Delacroix (Ralph Brown, Alien 3).
