The Emperor's New Clothes


The Emperor's New Clothes
Napolean Bonarparte — defeated, powerless and exiled to the island of St. Helena to live out the rest of his life in lonely, faded isolation. Or was he? This whimsical, captivating, romantic comedy presents a decidedly different version of the events that shaped the course of history!

Determined to retake the crown, Napolean swaps places with Eugene Lenormand, a look-alike commoner. But Napolean's journey back to Paris takes more twists and turns than ever imagined.

Meanwhile, Lenormand finds his glamerous new role much too rewarding to ever admit the deception! So, while France's famed leader struggles at adapt to the simple life of a commoner, the once-lowly Lenormand takes his newfound ''stardom'' to laugh-provoking new heights.

Acclaimed actor Ian Holm (The Lord of the Rings, Chariots of Fire) gives a bravura dual performance as both Napolean and Lenormand in this delightful comedy of swapped roles and mistaken identity.

103 minutes, All Ages.
