  • Tess: A strong-willed peasant girl is sent by her father to the estate of some local aristocrats to capitalize on a rumour that their families are from the same line. This fateful visit commences an epic narrative of sex, class, betrayal, and revenge. With its earthy visual textures it is a work of great pastoral beauty as well as vivid storytelling
  • Orlando: Orlando, an English nobleman, defies the laws of nature with surprising results. Immortal and highly imaginative, he undergoes a series of extraordinary transformations that humorously, hauntingly illustrate the eternal war between the sexes
  • A Handful of Dust: Brenda Last has everything that other women would envy--a loving aristocratic husband, an adorable son, a huge stately home in the country. But, for a bit of fun, Brenda starts an affair with a social climbing young scrounger from London. It is the start of an inexorable slide into disaster
