Cyrano De Bergerac [DVD]
1.  Cyrano De Bergerac [DVD] DVD ~ Gerard Depardieu

The Libertine [DVD]
3.  The Libertine [DVD] DVD ~ Johnny Depp
The list author says:
  "Worth watching to see Johnny Depp spout such words of filth as the notorious Earl of Rochester. Largely unengaging but with many excellent performances. Fanastic soundtrack by Michael Nyman."

3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (69 customer reviews)

5.  The Draughtsman's Contract [1982] [DVD] DVD ~ Anthony Higgins

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Stage Beauty [DVD]
