THE AGE OF INNOCENCE

Martin Scorsese’s lavish period piece, an achingly beautiful adaptation of the classic novel.

No filmmaker captures the grandeur and energy of New York like MARTIN SCORSESE (Goodfellas). With this sumptuous romance, he meticulously adapted the work of another great New York artist, EDITH WHARTON, bringing to life her tragic novel of the cloistered world of Gilded Age Manhattan. The Age of Innocence tells the story of Newland Archer (My Beautiful Laundrette’s DANIEL DAY-LEWIS), whose engagement to an innocent socialite (Heathers’ WINONA RYDER) binds him to the codes and rituals of his upbringing. But when her cousin (Dangerous Liaisons’ MICHELLE PFEIFFER) arrives in town on a wave of scandal after separating from her husband, she ignites passions in Newland he never knew existed. Swelling with exquisite period detail, this film is an alternately heart-breaking and satirical look at the brutality of old-world America.
