Archer Isabel is a young woman of daring independence and equally fierce desires. Her head-strong innocence is no match, however, for the manipulations of her duplicitous friend Madame Merle and the devious Gilbert Osmond. Based off of the novel by Henry James.

Tolerable, though disappointing, adaptation of the Henry James novel. Suffers from its director's auteurist impulses. Nicole Kidman cries a lot.

A movie is never the same as the book. I watched it as an independent story.

I don't know how it is possible to ruin a Henry James story, but this movie is a prime example. The collective star power does nothing to uplift it. Skip it!

Dated sad Henry James story on the struggle of women, especially the spirited young ones, in rich settings of the high society in 1870's Europe. Times may be different but James' quotes sound true today as well (see IMDb or read the book)

That isn't the only thing Barberton library does wrong.

This was a terrible movie. Suffered through the whole thing thinking it would get better. It didn't.
Don't waste your time.

Ralph Touchett: I call a person rich when he can meet the requirements of his imagination.
Ralph Touchett: I love you but without hope.
Isabel Archer: Why should there be pain then? That's not the deepest thing.
