Metadata:

Costume designer James Acheson received an Academy Award for Dangerous Liaisons, in which Close played the Marquise de Merteuil, the scheming aristocrat, former lover, and rival of John Malkovich’s Valmont. Their mutual devotion to manipulation and seduction as a means of wielding power binds them, even as their plot unravels and their betrayals multiply. Construction of one’s social self, status, and appearance in 18th-century France are significant themes running through the film, and costuming becomes nearly a character itself. Contains sexual violence.
