Watch The Libertine [Le Libertin]
- 1 hr 40 min
France, late 18th Century. The State, in alliance with the Church, has forbidden the publication and distribution of Diderot's Encyclopedia. As he struggles with the Morality chapter of the illicit Encyclopedia, Diderot juggles his mistresses, his wife's suspicions and his daughter's libertarian tendencies. The arrival of beautiful, mysterious Madame Therbouche, closely followed by that of Baron Holbach's sententious brother, the Cardinal, do nothing to simplify this libertine community's life.
