“A Truly Mesmerizing Portrait” —Rolling Stone
“Two Thumbs Up” —Siskel & Ebert
Nominated for Two Academy Awards® Including Best Supporting Actress (Barbara Hershey)
Academy Award–winner Nicole Kidman stars in The Portrait Of A Lady, based on the Henry James novel of freedom and seduction. Isabel Archer (Kidman) is a young woman of daring independence and equally fierce desires. Her headstrong innocence is no match, however, for the manipulations of her duplicitous friend Madame Merle (Barbara Hershey) and the devious Gilbert Osmond (John Malkovich). Featuring an all-star supporting cast including Sir John Gielgud, Shelley Winters, Christian Bale, Viggo Mortensen and Mary-Louise Parker, writer/director Jane Campion’s (The Piano) vision is a lavish, richly layered epic of seduction, betrayal and hopeful triumph.
