A FILM BY JAN HŘEBEJK AND PETR JARCHOVSKÝ
ABOUT SEX, MONEY AND A GOOD MAN

In theatres September 7, 2006!

The Robert Graves poem by the same name inspired Jan Hřebejk and Petr Jarchovsk ý to tell the romantic story of a young woman (Aňa Geislerová) dealing with dilemma of loving two men at once (Roman Luknár and Josef Abrhám); a dilemma between sexual dependence and assuring a future for herself and her children (Adam Mišík and Michaela Mrvíková); a dilemma in her relationship to her mother (Jana Brejchová) and step-father (Jiří Schmitzer) and with her mother-in-law (Emília Vášáryová). Beauty in Trouble is full of unexpected and twists, humor, a paradoxical ending and amazing performances by the actors.
