Possessed by love. Consumed by desire.
In some ways The Rake's Progress, this adaption of a famous novel struggles to connect with the audience. We follow a young man as he uses his power of seduction, the only thing he is really good at, to rise in Parisian society, by means of trysts with wealthy married women.
