In the feature film The Affair of the Necklace, Jean-Louis trained Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank to move and embody Countess Valois De La Motte in a believable way, carrying out her plans at Versailles in 1785.

As a specialist in 17th & 18th century period movement (French & English), Jean-Louis focused on assisting Hilary and the other leading actors in penetrating the period manners as deeply as they penetrated their acting roles. Producer Kira Davis shares her thoughts on the collaboration:

“Jean-Louis Rodrigue is an incredible asset to any production. He zeros in on the role as well as the actor to work together in shaping the character in a very special way. We had the opportunity to hire Jean Louis on The Affair of the Necklace, where he worked with Hilary Swank and the other actors to bring all the attributes of that period in movement into the filming process. His knowledge, expertise, and presence were not only beneficial to the actors, but to the production as well. We would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.”
