The Bostonians

The Bostonians

Academy Award-winning actresses Jessica Tandy, Vanessa Redgrave, and Linda Hunt headline an all-star cast alongside Christopher Reeve in this Merchant Ivory adaptation of Henry James’s novel of political intrigue and forbidden romance in post-Civil War Boston.

Olive Chancellor (Redgrave) finds her infatuation with young activist Verena Tarrant (Madeleine Potter) challenged by a Southern lawyer (Reeve) who also loves her.

An intricately drawn study of the impact of women’s suffrage on society, The Bostonians is also a lush evocation of the late 19th century, with dazzling cinematography by Walter Lassally and a memorable score by Richard Robbins.

Cohen Film Collection is proud to present this new restoration of this Merchant Ivory classic.
