Heat and Dust

Cross-cutting between two generations, James Ivory's sprawling epic of self-discovery (originally released in 1983) is also a lush evocation of the prismatic and sensuous beauty of India. As she searches for answers to the mystery surrounding a long-ago affair between her aunt Olivia (Greta Scacchi) and an Indian prince (Shashi Kapoor), Anne (Academy Award® Winner, Julie Christie) becomes immersed in the local culture, the pull of the past simultaneously leading her into a clearer view of her own future.
