A film is being made of a story, set in 19th century England, about Charles, a biologist who’s engaged to be married, but who falls in love with outcast Sarah, whose melancholy makes her leave him after a short, but passionate affair.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
I remember how heralded Streep's performance was in this film at the time. Honestly, I have to hand it all to Irons, he is so gifted and perhaps all too often overlooked. His manic search for his blemished love is sublime.
