After Josephine

Most people know that Napoleon and Josephine were an item, historically speaking. But what about Napoleon and Desirée, Pauline, and Georgina. "Napoleon & Love" (Acorn Media), a British costume drama, skips the French conqueror's early life and later military campaigns and concentrates on the stylish ballrooms and bedrooms where the divorced Napoleon woos and sometimes weds the women in his life. Starring Ian Holm, this lavish film arrives on DVD March 1.
