    • Synopsis
    • James Ivory brings Henry James’s classic novel to the screen in this evocative, historical adaptation filled with exciting, exacting performances. The narrative centres on the fight between an ardent feminist and a southern gentleman for a charismatic faith healer’s daughter. Basil Ransom (Christopher Reeve), a conservative lawyer, woos the youthful, charming and articulate Verena Tarrant (Madeleine Potter), but he objects to her involvement in the suffragist movement and to Olive Chancellor (Vanessa Redgrave), Verena’s feminist mentor.
