Alan Rickman takes both the director’s chair and the throne in his latest movie, A Little Chaos.

Rickman stars as King Louis XIV opposite Kate Winslet, who plays Sabine de Barra, a woman hired to build one of Versailles’ gardens.

And while Sabine may make a fan out of the king, it doesn’t seem she’ll have an easy time completing her work if the film’s new trailer is any indication.

The film is Rickman’s first directing turn on a major movie since 1997’s The Winter Guest. A Little Chaos made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and will hit North American theaters on May 27, 2015.
