Synopsis:
Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons star as two separate pairs of lovers in this engaging and beautiful visualized film. As Mike and Anna, two film actors involved in a tumultuous affair, and Charles and Sarah, the star-crossed Victorian lovers whom the actors portray, Streep and Irons are at their compelling best. Just as his character Charlie's reputation is ruined by the enigmatic Sarah, Mike finds he cannot accept the intangible affections of the wily Anna. The skilful interweaving of these two love stories - one period, one contemporary - yields a fascinating insight into the passion and mystery that can pull two people together...and just as easily tear them apart.
