Abstract
Remains Of The Day : Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs) and Emma Thompson (Howards End) reunite with the acclaimed Merchant Ivory film-making team for this extraordinary and moving story of blind devotion and repressed love.
 
Jane Eyre : A Franco Zeffirelli version of the Bronte classic starring Academy Award Winning Actor William Hurt. Jane Eyre is a poor orphan who grows up to become governess at Thornfield Hall, the home of the enigmatic Mr Rochester. Although Rochester is initially gruff and dismissive towards Jane, a warmth develops between them.
 
The House of Mirth : The glittering yet treacherous world of New York high society comes to brilliant life in the heartbreaking story of Lily Bart (Gillian Anderson), a renowned beauty of exquisite charm who seeks a wealthy husband but, in a series of tragic events, winds up disgraced and discarded. Adapted from Edith Wharton's novel, and directed by Terence Davies (Distant Voices), The House Of Mirth is an intelligent, dramatic sensation, which features an outstanding supporting all-star cast including Laura Linney (You Can Count on Me), Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction), Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters) and Anthony LaPaglia (Sweet and Lowdown).
