Jeanne de la Motte-Valois knows what she wants. She also knows how to get it by conniving, deceiving and betraying. And by doing it so scandalously that it helps send Queen Marie Antoinette to the guillotine.

Wealth and desire. Politics and corruption. Celebrity and sexuality. Jeanne combines them all in a scheme to acquire a diamond necklace that will enable her to buy back the royal status taken from her.

Boys Don't Cry Academy Award winner Hilary Swank (as Jeanne), Jonathan Pryce, Christopher Walken and others form the witty and wicked gallery of characters torn from history's pages yet embellished with modern imagination. And Charles Shyer directs this fact-based Affair whose eye-filling opulence includes filming at the spectacular Palace of Versailles.
