Most of his success comes from his manipulation and seduction of some of the cities most glamorous and influential women. He is aided initially by the wife of his friend who is well-connected in Parisian society.
Duroy is played by Robert Pattinson. Some of the women that he seduces include Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci.
