The Portrait of A LadyBook - 1996
Alluring, high-spirited American heiress Isabel - "I always want to know the things one shouldn't do ... so as to choose" - is in Europe to seek her own destiny. But after refusing marriage proposals from both Lord Warburton, a "prince" of the aristocracy, and Caspar Goodwood, a "prince" of American industry, Isabel becomes utterly captivated by the languid charms of Gilbert Osmond, whom she sees as the "prince" she has been looking for. To him, she represents a superior prize worth a fortune; through him, she faces a tragic choice. Love, intrigue, and betrayal make this timeless, many-layered masterpiece a profound and moving mirror of the human condition.
