SYNOPSIS

Brought to life by a stellar ensemble cast – including Nicole Kidman, John Malkovich, Shelley Duvall, Richard E Grant, Barbara Hershey, Christian Bale and Viggo Mortensen, among other stars – this adaptation of Henry James’s novel is the poignant story of an independent young woman who becomes trapped in a stifling relationship with a wealthy aristocrat. Campion’s vividly rendered film features elaborate costuming and production design, and continues her cinematic fascination with women who reject the strictures of male-dominated society.

PG | Adult themes
