Synopsis:
When Anne (Julie Christie) inherits the letters of her great-aunt Olivia (Greta Scacchi), she becomes drawn to India by their revelations of a relationship with a handsome and charismatic, if not entirely scrupulous, Indian prince (Shashi Kapoor). Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's adaptation from her own Booker Prize-winning novel moves effortlessly between past and present in a sensual and evocative journey, telling the story of both women's paths to self-discovery more than half a century apart.
