A grand adventure set in an interesting time period. I had been curious about the portrayal of life in the very earliest days of Louisiana from the then contemporary French point of view, why it would be someplace to escape to and how hard or wonderful that might turn out to be, especially as a plot element. Of course, wrapping this adventure around a tortured love story doesn't hurt either. I also thought it would make an interesting movie, either as a period piece, or something entirely transposed to the modern world---like Clueless did with Jane Austen's Emma. Of course, Manon Lescaut's been done in a million versions across the centuries since it was published, but I think it could be once again fresh and exciting. Any filmmakers out there?
