Fans of hedonism should flock to Saint Laurent, a lavish portrayal of fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his rise to international stardom. Portrayed by the dashing actor Gaspard Ulliel, Laurent led an outwardly glamorous life in the 1960s and '70s that was also marked by addictions to sex and drugs. This French film does what the French do best -- plunge headlong into the artist's tortured soul before coming up for air for a cigarette and a twirl on the dance floor with Lea Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color). See it in theaters this weekend.
