Aro Recommended Portrait of a Lady


USA 1996, 144 minutes
Dir. Jane Campion
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Romance

Topics: Period - 1800s.


Aroview: Unfairly roasted by many critics, our Jane's adaptation of Henry James' novel dares to offer more than romance in fancy dress, but instead a complex, austere work about the paradox of feminism. Nicole Kidman leads the note-perfect cast as the independent lady ironically drawn to the 'wrong guy' (John Malkovich) in 1800s Italy.

The DVD comes with a supremely candid and insightful 'making of' documentary called 'Portrait'.
