starring
Christopher Reeve Vanessa Redgrave Madeleine Potter
This highly-praised adaptation of HENRY JAMES 'S famous novel about women's emancipation is by the Merchant Ivory team responsible for Heat and Dust, Room with a View and Maurice.
New England in the 19th century. Olive Chancellor, a shy but forceful suffragette, takes on the education of Verena Tarrant, a pretty, naive young woman with a gift for oratory. But her influence over Verena is threatened by Basil Ransome , a handsome, but impecunious, lawyer. Not only is he in love with Verena, he is less than sympathetic to the feminist cause.
