Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson), who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach-ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth.

The award-winning epic film "Bel Ami" premieres at the Sedona International Film Festival's Mary D. Fisher Theatre. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 3 through Friday, July 6. (There will be no shows on Wednesday, July 4 in observance of the Fourth of July holiday.)

"Bel Ami" features a stellar, award-winning ensemble cast including Oscar-nominees Kristin Scott Thomas and Uma Thurman, Golden Globe-nominee Christina Ricci, and Robert Pattinson. The film is based on the 1885 novel of the same name by Guy de Maupassant.

Possessed by love - consumed by desire. "Bel Ami" is the story of Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson), who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach-ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth.

A devastatingly handsome but penniless ex-soldier of 24, Georges is ruthless in his ambition for success and status in grand society. Driven by the poverty he was born into, and sick of scratching out a miserable existence in a world where wealth and status is all, he allows nothing to stand in the way of his social climb to power and position, not even intoxicating love and beautiful women.

"Bel Ami" is about a very beautiful, cut-throat young man who discovers he has got one commodity to sell. From a prostitute's embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, Georges discovers a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.

Kristin Scott Thomas plays Madame Rousset. Elegant and demure, Rousset has the ear of her powerful husband. She is a happy and faithful wife until she becomes a victim of Georges' irresistible powers of seduction.

Uma Thurman stars as Madeleine - a stunningly beautiful, influential, highly intelligent and fiercely independent woman. Unlike most women of her time, she cannot be an obedient and submissive wife, nor a mistress; she desires above all to be an equal. Well-connected in political circles, she is passionate about politics and achieves her ambitions through writing Georges' articles.

Christina Ricci is a commanding presence in the role of Clotilde. A ravishing, playful, vivacious woman of high society, Clotilde's husband is away for long spells of time leaving her with time on her hands. She is charming company and becomes closer than anyone to Georges.

"Bel Ami" will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, July 3, 5 and 6, at 4 and 7 p.m. each day. There are no shows on July 4 in observance of the Fourth of July Holiday.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members ($6 for full-time students). For tickets and more information, please call (928) 282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.com.
